weather guitar

(viewed 2347 times)

Weather Guitar by Simon Blackmore



from the leaflet:



"Wind speed and direction affect the rhythm and timing of the notes. The speed of the propeller in the measuring device determines the number of notes plucked per minute - one hundred revolutions of the propeller result in one hundred notes per minute."



"Music generated by natural forces is as old as mankind. One of the earliest examples is the Aeolian harp, an instrument which is played by the wind. Blackmore says, 'It is my hope that this lonesome guitar adds to this tradition in a humorous and playful way.'"



Sadly, the guitar was installed after the recent freak tornadoes we've had here in the city. Although I doubt the guys who had their roof blown off were feeling particularly humorous or playful anyway.



During my visit it managed 3 plucks, although the tantalising potential as you waited for it to spring into life was almost enough. Almost.



at the Ikon Gallery until 13th November

Me to the bench. The metaphorical distance between now and autumn.

Come on, come on, come on.

Swings: the gift that just keeps on giving. Another installment in the
seemingly/hopefully endless series.
