The wind has a voice now, all thanks to the Acoustic Wind pavilion Aeolus. The spiky organ may seem like a few pipes thrown together to form a contraption, but in reality the device is a musical organ all ready to give out elaborate musical notes.
As per Greek mythology, Aeolus means the ruler of the four winds. Deriving its cue from this concept, the musical organ converts shifting patterns of the wind into resonating, melodious sounds. Hearing the organ’s sound, one would feel as if the wind is singing especially for you. The design is actually a giant harp, and the wavering sound of the wind brings forth the quality of the wind in the sculpture’s pipes.
The acoustic wonder is an optical wonder, and incorporates a very pleasant sight within its bosom. Comprised of a series of hollow stainless steel tubes; when one stands below the contraption, you can see through the multiple holes in the tubes. The amazing sculpture is for sale and is all set for adoption. People can view this fascinating beauty at the Canada Square Park in Canary Wharf from 27th March to 10th May 2012. Seeing is believing, for the true beauty of the multifaceted sculpture is best viewed when seen in reality.
