Wind Zylinder
Bernward Frank


This kinetic sound installation consists of a horizontal and vertical rotating axis, two half discs in steel, various lamellas and clappers. The wind brings the object in the tree in motion and moves the half discs. As a result the clappers sound by hitting the lamellas. The soundmix is often subtle, but can be extreme at times of strong wind. Wind Zylinder is the first sound installation in Het Klankenbos that entirely uses natural energy.
