The Aeolian Harp

The Aeolian harp is an interesting instrument that is played just by the wind.  Named after Aeolus, the ancient Greek god of the wind, the harp is placed in an open window, or outdoors, where the wind can blow across the strings to product tones.  The only instrument played solely by the wind, its etherial volume of sound is controlled only by the force of the air.
