Wind Harp
Premiered at Color the Wind in Clear Lake, Iowa, February 20, 2010.

The harp is elevated so that people do not stand in front of the strings, blocking the wind. Sound holes were cut into the "legs" to allow people to hear better when the wind was very light.

Check out the sound clip!

This harp has a higher-pitched ringing sound, like tintinnabuli.
