Early Aeolian Device

As per this post and in anticipation of the forthcoming Audiograft 2012 festival, during each day in February 2011, a recording created during Audiograft 2011 will be played here as a Sound Diary entry. The whole series will act like an album of sonic snapshots from the festival; though without frames, without borders, and filled with the overspilling sounds of the surrounding world.

Today’s sound was recorded outside the Richard Hamilton Building during Max Eastley’s talk. It features Max demonstrating the sound of a very early Aeolian Device, people taking photos, some kind of maintenance vehicle traversing the car-park, traffic, birdsong, and Eastley articulating the idea that our first musical instruments were Aeolian devices, and may have been discovered through the creation and use of spears.
