    Proc. ICASSP, Orlando, 2002
Distributed physical models of musical instruments have been used to acoustically “ping” Internet connections between two network hosts. Sound waves propagated through Internet acoustics behave just as in air, water or along a stretched string. In this case, a musical synthesis technique creates waves on the Internet path between two hosts.
