Harmony Wind Harps are designed to reflect and amplify the creative energy of nature by acting as a huge magnet that can draw our attention to not only the sound of the sculptures, but more importantly. the vibration of the immediate soundscape. This includes all of it, the wind, birds, frogs, coyotes horses, ravens, crickets at night, the cry of the red-tailed hawk.
The element of the wind is an omnipresent and primal force of nature that is not only very powerful but can also be very subtle. It is these gentle breezes that sound absolutely magical when transmuted into an audible vibration.
It is my experience that contemporary wind harps’ full spectrum resonance and endless tapestry of harmonics out-create the wildest human imaginings, for the sound of nature is the heartbeat and rhythm of creation.
Our goal at Harmony Wind Harps is to create enchanting nature driven musical environments where the cares of the world drop away for just a moment.
From a Scientific Point of View
Within the last two decades, there has been an explosion of interest in the science of music as a new generation of scientists have developed the tools to discover the intimate connections between music and human life. The resulting discoveries reveal compelling evidence that music truly is a fundamental aspect of life, something that defines us and binds us together as humans.
The origin of sound reveals the origin of all creation. According to quantum physics, throughout the world, all matter at the subatomic level is in a state of constant vibration; our world is vibrated into existence.
Oscillation in the shape of a spiral vortex is the most energy-efficient movement. That is why all matter oscillates – not only each atom but also the solar system and our galaxy. The Universe is a vast musical instrument that is in a constant state of vibration.
"We are vibration. No exceptions. But it’s not only sound and music. Colors, shapes, movements, fragrances, thoughts, all have vibratory make-up. Electromagnetic events are just as ‘musical’ as sound. Colors sing.
It’s clear that sound and ALL vibration, then, must intimately be connected to health and well-being. Once we realize the scope of this our reality changes forever."

Harmonics are inherent within all sounds. Anything that vibrates, produces sound and creates harmonics: the sound of waves crashing on the shore, the wind blowing through aspen leaves or the sound of our voice all has harmonics. In fact, harmonics are what give our speaking voices their individuality.
Also known as overtones, harmonics are mathematically interrelated ratios or intervals that are created when striking any fundamental note. Regularly listening to harmonics, and especially if we create them with our own voice, as in chanting or toning, can alter our states of consciousness to expand our perception of “reality.
Healing – whether emotional, psychological, spiritual or physical – is an act of re-creation. It is the process of reorganizing our being toward its intended state of dynamic equilibrium.
“Natural Harmonic Sound is important because it brings people together, to sing and to dance to rejoice to grieve to praise and all of these things have a very natural sound.
There is something about this natural harmonic geometry for the ears. Harmony can just re-frame the mind whether we are new here to the earth or if we are in our ninth decade.
First, —harmony is healthy. Harmony is based on the physics and mathematics of certain proportions a 5th a 4th, a major 3rd and minor 3rd and the body knows it instinctively and this is one of the things that really has created the art and lyricism within the beauty of music.”
