I'm designing a prehistoric-dragonfly that has little holes or perforations in its wings. When the wind flows through them, they make music (the viability of flying with these wings will be covered later.)
By prehistoric I mean a dragonfly the size of a hawk, with a slightly more complex, modified circular-respiratory system to allow it to get the oxygen it needs.
How could this dragonfly make "music"? Certainly music isn't possible, but could musical notes be produced by these wings? Would the holes affect them?
Requirements (please include in your answer):
- Tell whether variations in wings could make "songs" differ from individual to individual (or not)
- Whether different notes at various pitches can be made (or not)
- You may manipulate wing size (So the wings can be as big as they need to be) , hole size/shape, and arrangement of holes
- Ignore whether the dragonfly can fly
The holes can range from 1mm to 2 cm (in diameter). Per every 6.5 square centimeters of wing surface, there can be up to 3.5 square centimeters of holes. They can be any shape.
Thanks to all in the Sandbox for helping me develop this question.
