Wow, that is some sophisticated thinking! The render looks really cool too.

Would the real-life project be easier (and still perform as intended) if the
blocks were made from some kind of plastic foam, instead of wood?

I also play in a classic-rock band; but for the past nine months, we have
managed to play only about once per month, and only *outside* due to safety
precautions re: Covid-19. (And we all wear masks except when performing/singing
on-stage.) Still not a truly safe environment, I admit. Personally, I would have
preferred to stay safe at home instead. But I was out-voted :-\

Our band's bass-guitar player is currently setting up a home recording studio;
I'll tell him about your experiment.
