So, I’m a kid in middle school on the school Science Olympiad team. My event in the competition is as follows: build a musical instrument, be able to play it well, compose a harmony for a given melody, and play the piece together with your partner. I have some plans for making a wind instrument but they end up not working well. I finally decide to make a bamboo panflute. The competition is in a few weeks now. I realize I don’t have the breath capacity to play my instrument for 10 seconds, let alone the 90 second piece I am expected to play. Things aren’t going well with my partner either. He is building a giant xylophone but he is far from done. I’m doubtful whether I will finally succeed; we will find out about that in about a month.
Anyways, my house is littered with pieces of bamboo and building tools.
