Abstract-- This work explores novel mechanisms for aerial
acoustic machine-machine communications. It builds on previous
work by some of the authors [1], as well as others [2]. In this pa-
per we describe aerial acoustic communication systems that sound
like musical instruments. The sound primitives come from simple
models for the sound of the piano, the clarinet, and the bells. The
messages are coded by combining these primitives according to
musical harmony. Our experiments show that these communica-
tion systems are well suited for applications requiring very low bit
