 The Hindu : The electronic distraction at concerts
When the audience hears the tambura, it is as a background sound that is at once melodious and refined that barely draw one's attention.
In fact the electronic tambura appears to be basically designed to occupy the sound space because it is possible to increase its volume inordinately and it can sometimes be heard even before the curtain has risen.
Thus while the very beautiful background sound of the tambura remained almost imperceptible to the audience, the noise pollution of this electronic gadget is, often, uncomfortably loud enough to lamentably destroy one's listening pleasure.

The tambura is the acoustic potential for the whole harmonic series; and, as such, represents the cosmic potential for all apparent phenomena.
