Thread Name: A Kindness: Picture of an Aeolian Harp??
Subject: RE: A Kindness: Picture of an Aeolian Harp??
The sound clips I heard on those sites are different to how a harp sounds in the wind and I suspect that the strings on the Aeolian harps have been tuned in unison.

When a harp is in tune, or especially when it is tuned to a pentatonic scale, all the strings sound in the wind and it sets up harmonics. The sounds are fuller and more melodic.

If I can get a tape recording of my harp in the wind (that's the easy part) how could I share that with everyone here? Is there an easy way to get it from a tape recording to a piece of digital music?
