Aeolian Tower Harp - New Sound Clips with Video

Aeolian harp with 32 strings. Sound clips were recorded separately from video. The main purpose of the video is to hear the layers of harp sounds, so turn up the volume, close your eyes if you want and listen to the wind sing. All sound clips recorded at: 46.891303, -98.698958.
