We consider here the possibility of shaping the high-frequency acoustic propagation in a liquid upon directional confinement. This hypothesis is investigated by inelastic x-ray scattering measurements on water confined in aligned multiwalled carbon nanotubes, in which the momentum transfer was either parallel or orthogonal to the confinement axis. The comparison between the spectra measured in these two scattering geometries highlights the anisotropic nature of the dynamic response of directionally confined water, thus potentially inspiring pathways to shape high-frequency sound propagation in isotropic systems. Finally, a Bayesian analysis of measured spectra unravels close similarities in the phonon dispersions of multiwalled nanotubes and graphite.
