Here is a wind harp we built called the Trinity. A wind harp creates harmonics when at least a 25 mph laminar wind blows through the strings while the harp is held at a vertical position approximately six feet off the ground. The harp makes a kind of etheric sound. A wind harp can be tuned in a variety of ways. Building a wind harp can teach you a lot about resonance, types of wood, and so much more.

For the trinity, we used a low g tuning for all strings. We have experimented with slacking all of the nylon strings as well as tuning each string differently. A wind harp can also be strummed with a feather or quill part or plucked/strummed with fingers.

When you're not flying because of inclement weather, build a wind harp!
