Wheel music

Wheel music

"What if there were a musical instrument in the shape of a wheel? And what if this wheel had strings for spokes, could spin, and when played, would sound like the wind?" Instrument maker Cris Forster answered his own question by building the Chrysalis. The wheel can be spun in either direction. Does it sound like the wind? Links below will lead you to a sound sample, so that you can decide.
