Description: The original monophonic version of my Aeolian harp was built in 1972 and in 1980 temporarily another stereophonic version was added. The name of the instrument has its origins in the sonic qualities of the traditional instrument, but my version does not use strings and it vibrates thanks to the human breath and not thanks to the wind. It was only in 1985/1986 that I finally built a completely new quadraphonic form of the instrument that I first played in short collective improvisations before exhibiting it for three months at the 1986 Crafts Council exhibition. Composition develops some elements and new techniques that I tried first in my piece sole "multimorphosis" written this year.
