This web site has no intended structure.  It is a place that I can use to store some of the things that I am currently working on for review by friends.  Where you see the word 'Download' be aware that clicking it will download an animation.  In a windows system a small icon will be placed on the bottom of the page.  Click on it to start it.

Mike Points Out Details

Mike Sterling Points Out Details of the Bernoulli Involute Musical Instrument


The above instrument was designed in an effort to have something playable and reproducible. The geometry was a key for me.  I wanted to produce a 'singing sculpture'.

I spent about 3000 hours in the design process.  I produced digital drawings that could be printed and marked up.  This process perfected the design all in digital form.  Initial fabrication and check-out worked seamlessly. All of it is in digital form so it can be reproduced by making a phone call to Kuhl Machine Shop in Keady Ontario.  Click Here  Every part of it was produced using the latest CNC machines.  For a look at where I work Click Here

Bernoulli Involute First Tests April 1, 2017

The test were done in a small room 10x12 using my PC to record the sound.  Meandering Mike was made up on the fly.  It was recorded.  It will be revisited in due time.  What you hear is a bit halting, but after all, it is what it is.

S(n) with Zeta Showing Primes by Mike Sterling

∑ S(n)/ns= ∏ (1+S(ps)/ps+ S(p2s)/p2s + .....) = Square Root of the Zeta

The function S(n) takes the square root of the famed Zeta Function It can be real or complex square root.
