    Word of Week: BORBORYGMI

    Grant has suggested our new word for the week:

    BORBORYGMI
    Pronounced BOR-boh-RIG-mee

    Borborygmi means:
    1. Rumbling sounds caused by gas moving through the intestines (stomach "growling").
    Grant is renown for his www.contrabass.com site and this word is related to sonic rumblings. This rumbly-in-the-tummy is a sound that may need to be sampled.

    I am hearing borborygmic noises

    Thanks Grant for this week's word.

    And feel free to volunteer some of your favorite words for the next Word of the Week.

    Well, I had thought of writing a short story, with characters named Borbo Rygmus (the singular form) and Perry Stalsis (Peristalsis) and their travels on the Dirac seas. But I never got around to it.

    And in which library will this included? Will it be a Keyswitch instrument? Don't think about that too long...

    Try the mod wheel controlled Bass Drum roll in GPO - Instant Borborygmi!

    As always, one can find the basis for all sorts of surprising effects in the Garritan Libraries!

    Many years ago (mid 70s) I was taking a course in PA system design. The professor mentioned some interesting research he was reading at the time.

    It seems that the gov't was exploring new ways of handling crowd control for the anti-war demonstrations and riots that had taken place over the previous 10 years. One area of research was in using acoustic devices.

    It turns out that the resonate frequency of the large intestine is somewhere between 7 and 9 Hz. So what the gov't wanted to do was use a BIG amplifier to produce a signal. The idea being that once you got a good riot going and this device was activated, everyone would get a sudden attack of Montezuma's revenge. It's hard to have a good riot when you are otherwise occupied.

    The problem is, how do you make sure this doesn't affect the police as well. They went back to the drawing board.

    I was playing with the effects in the KontaktPlayer, and found that Bari Sax + distortion + delay + chorus + reverb = Borborygmi

    PS: can you help disshartha?

    There once was a chick that did dig me,
    Though I am a very small pygmy
    With hacks, coughs and wheezes,
    And sundry diseases
    Like flatulence and Borborygmi.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Be sharp, always be natural, never be flatulence.
