Reuben's Club Heater

Combined outdoor gas heater and Reuben's tube flame music visualizer

This is a combination of an outdoor gas heater for the front of restaurants or clubs, and the Reuben's tube flame experiment which visualizes sound played into a gas filled tube via flames coming out of holes in the side of the tube.

This gas tube heater could be placed outside of clubs where people need to stay warm while they are drinking and flirting and listening to music, and the club music could be pumped into the tube, visualizing the music. (See both links)

It could be horizontal rather than vertical. A series of long vertical flames sucked into pipes could work as the columns of a heater-railing. Maybe you could play with sucking flames into different shapes of tube-lets, or sub-tubes (what do they call the fractally things on feathers -- barbules? -- which brings up something else to experiment around with: fractal tubing) to optimize their responsiveness to the sound waves being played into the tube.
