Description:

Capturing the power of the wind at the crest of Greenwich Park Hill, leading sound artists create an intricate landscape of musical installations powered by the wind. Intriguing kinetic, sonic sculptures produce other-worldly sounds as nature’s unseen force breathes life into them.

This captivating collection is inspired by Max Eastley’s explorations into Aeolian (wind driven) instruments. Six of the finest sound artists around today (Mark Anderson, Jony Easterby, Kathy Hinde, Dan Fox, Nathaniel Robin Mann and Mike Blow) join Max in conjuring up an evocative and timeless world. 

There's lots of additional information and beautiful material on Audible Forces from Brighton Festival, Salisbury International Festival and Norfolk and Norwich Festival on our blog, including a couple of great videos!
