There are one-dimensional instruments (e.g. violin), 2-D instruments (e.g. drums) and 3-D instruments (e.g. xylophone, saxophone). Tunes are made by changing string length. membrane area, solid matter volume, or air volume in the instrument. Instrument design will introduce the length, area, and volume of various geometric figures.
