Music created by the wind
In Dorset every two years we have a festival called "Inside Out" that promises extraordinary events in extraordinary places - and it always manages to match this billing! One of the events this time was "Harmonic fields", a sensory journey exploring the music created by the wind using 500 musical instruments!
The site for Harmonic Fields was in a disused quarry on Portland with views overlooking the sea.
The music created was simple and pure, The sound and tempo being dependent on the strength and direction of the winds.
Some of the music reminded me of the sound of the cow bells in Switzerland and Austria.
Other sounds were very loud. There was a string over the top of this drum and with your head inside the drum (as illustrated by my daughter) the sound was similar to thunder.
The final finale was an amazing symphony of sound with so many instruments gathered together.
Wishing everyone a good weekend, and thank you as always for your lovely comments and stopping by.
