Ward Mclain:The Wind Harp (1972)
“The Wind Harp” was a 1972 sculpture by Ward McLain, an aeolian harp.
I picked up the double album in a 2nd hand shop in the early 80s. This record, together with “Pagan Muzak” by NON (aka Boyd Rice), permanently changed the way that I listened to and thought about music. I had previously been very rigid in my thinking and thought of music as something which you “pushed” out into the world through force of will, yet here was something different, a sculpture played by the wind which transcended human composition (apart of course from the choice of string tuning and the choice of edit).”
