Harp in Tree

So the aussies are fighting back and I have been in the studio creating a piece for Heydon Wood to go with the aeolian harp and camera obscura.
This one see a rectangle of larch cut from a larch tree that is soon to be felled.  The rectangle of wood gave me the opportunity to create another musical instrument that will sit inside the tree, a handle in place to pull it out and play it.
It has an oak plectrum for playing it either in situ or taken and strolled around the wood.

Later in the week I will be making ear trumpets that will be drilled and set into the larch trees so the trees can be listen too.
