Moksville windharp installation


During AVAMAA, the MoKS annual summer art symposium, I had the chance to build an aeolian windharp installation with four harps. The construction was fairly simple, using mostly found materials, some cups or tin cans and two types of nylon string. The harps were set up in a square formation, forming a sort of “quadrophonic” arrangement. With a gentle breeze the aeolian effect was soft but could be clearly heard. It added a unique characteristic to the overall sonic environment of the weeks activities which were focused on using found or recycled materials to build up a “village” in the old apple orchard of Mooste. Some more photos of the installation can be seen below.
