The "IMT" device is for inhale not exhale, to start with.
I'm thinking of something like a "silent didgeridoo." Probably just an airflow resistance device of some sort, but it's silent, unlike a didgeridoo. You'd still have to learn to do the circular breathing part.
Do you think that circular breathing into some sort of simple airflow restricting device would give you the didgeridoo benefits, or do you see something specific about the didgeridoo like the vibrations or straining your lips?
