Wind Directed Sound Generator

„Wind Directed Sound Generator is an installation consisting of 4 fans (each representative for one direction of the wind), a relay-station (globe) and four brass tubes (chimes). The chimes not only produce the typical wind-chime sounds, but also serve as contacts for switches. Each of the four tubes is connected to one specific fan via the relay-station. If the contact-mallet, moved by wind, hits a chime, the relay is closed and a fan is turned on for 2 seconds. This influences wind conditions and therefore also the mallet. Thereby the resulting “game” between the four fans within this system generates fancy chime-music and wind-sounds as a byproduct.
