Oxford Contemporary Music
Audible Forces is an intricate landscape of musical installations powered by the wind. Intriguing kinetic, sonic creations produce other-worldly sounds as nature’s unseen force breathes life into them.
This captivating collection is inspired by sound artist Max Eastley’s explorations into Aeolian (wind driven) instruments, from their mythology and curious history, to contemporary explorations of them. Six of the finest sound artists around today (Mark Anderson, Jony Easterby, Kathy Hinde, Dan Fox, Nathaniel Robin Mann and Mike Blow) have joined Max and each created their own instruments that harness the wind. Their instruments form a unified experience made up of an ever changing sound world that captures the imagination.
