This sort of thing has been going on for quite a few years - at IRCAM
for instance - lots of work on modeling physically impossible
instruments. Mostly these are based on models of existing instruments,
which can be stretched to extreme cases. Modeling an unknown type of
"physical" behaviour will be a bit more tricky with this method, I
guess. Perhaps this is why a lot of electroacoustic music does not try
to create new instruments as such, but new sounds. Is this the better
way forward?
