Window harps are to be hung vertically or placed horizontally on the inside of a window frame, where draughts and breezes blowing across their strings play the harmonic series of notes. The various airs can be likened to being different ‘composers’, taking many years for a listener to become familiar with the wind harp’s spontaneous ‘repetoire’. Whether placed in a window of a home, work place, or institution, window harps create a refreshing ambiance- naturally!

Door Harps (sliding glass) are similar to window harps, but have a 6′ soundbox, allowing for a variety of string lengths that create a more colorful palette of harmonic music with less wind (stay tuned for an upcoming recording). Simply hang from one screw in the door frame.

This particular model stands 7.5′ tall and is strung with forty-eight 5’2″ strings. It plays a rich spectrum of powerful harmonic tones. The wind-vane at top may be easily removed to allow passage of the harp through a doorway to access either a porch or a patio.

Harmonic sanctuaries are wind harps in the form of weather-proof hexagonal or octagonal structures, measuring from four to twelve feet in diameter, and seating two to twenty-two people, respectively. The hexagonal model pictured above is a wind harp built for two. It measures 4′ in diameter and is 11′ feet tall to the base of the steeple. It is situated on a trailer, and is available for rent for celebrations, weddings, parties, workshops and retreat centers.
In a Harmonic sanctuary, listeners are intimately nestled in the harps’ soundbox, where the penetrating sounds can be felt as well as heard. Strung with thousands of feet of string, a powerful spectrum of harmonic frequencies is broadcasted, creating a totally unique auditory experience. Body, mind, and spirit are dynamically affected.
Highly novel and innovative, and free of human ego and artifice, a Harmonic sanctuary and its music transcends previous cultural, religious, and artistic associations, providing a timeless ‘sacred space’ for people to gather in. As well as offering a place of refuge from the elements, wind harps can act as ‘neutralizers’ of urban noise pollution.
Wind harp sanctuaries are being recognized as one of the most inspiring breakthroughs in applied music and sound healing technologies, and are increasingly being sought for educational and religious institutions, healing and retreat centers, hotels and resorts, parks, rooftop gardens, private dwellings, and new ‘Green’ urban multi-use developments. Suggested uses: Prayer & meditation, toning, dance and other movement arts, as a yoga or therapy room, studio, office space, dining room, or bedroom.
