Three Aeolian Installations for Bonn Hoeren – Botanical Gardens, Bonn

In 2014 Max Eastley was Bonn City sound artist. He built three Aeolian installations in the Botanical Gardens, Bonn, which were exhibited from 14th June - 31st October 2014. One installation consisted of Aeolian harps mounted on two rafts floating on a lake in the gardens. The sound of the harps was amplified and projected from speakers on the rafts. The other Aeolian installations used different materials, latex and black bamboo, that related to the environment of the gardens.
