The Wind Plays Harp

The following sonic experiment was filmed at Electric Eclectics Festival in Meaford, Ontario on August 2009. It was recorded with a wireless Sennheiser lavalier mic placed inside the cavity of the harp — “that’s how I don’t have any wind blowing dampening the sound” wrote the creator, Lester Alfonso. This is the raw recording with no effects added. The wind was strong enough to vibrate the strings and make a sound. The result is a trippy mystical song that makes you stop to ponder. One YouTube commenter wrote: “it’s amazing how mother nature plays music. It’s as though the planet has a mind of its own.”
