The Aeolian Soundmap was created by Kathy Hinde and Ed Holroyd, and was inspired by the Aeolian Harp, a stringed instrument that is played by the wind. Recordings of sounds that have been generated by the natural phenomena of the wind can be added to the soundmap to build a rich Aeolian soundscape.
You can compose with overlapping Aeolian soundscapes by ‘playing’ the soundmap like a scrolling musical score. Move around the map, zoom in and zoom out – frame the sounds you want to hear, then click ‘play’. Explore other possibilities by customised the playback settings and filtering the selection of Aeolian sounds.
