Intermingled standing waves can be passedaround in this windribboning configuration:

 

networked windribbons among birch trees ( sketch, top view )

A single triaxial sensor positioned at the main Windribbon node (T) has 3 analogue ins/outs. Eight potential standing waves caused by wind and trunk movements can have their vibrations passedaround in either direction and to adjacent strandage via bowed and clampable stainless steel "bridges" (( __) . Individual positions may be dampened for listening to a particular configuration of standing wave monitorings. The could possibly be used to introduce simultaneous ambience.

Any section requiring in/or/output mode may be de-coupled from an adjacent strand. Intermingled standing waves are the essence of this windribbon version. Total strandage will be devided among these eight tree trunks . 1/2 inch brass, galvanized and stainless steel wire of varying gauges are to be used between tree pairs. Solar-powered, quad-FM-sends and self-broadcasting-tree capabilities are planned.

A windribboning sound source depends upon separately joined trees consisting of two or more being clustered together and including a compliment of 1/2" brass and multiple gauges of galvanized and/or stainless steel wires. return to text
