Frederick Andrews - Aeolus series
This series is the outcome of Fred's exploration of his passion for nature and sound. He wanted to create an instrument that could be used as a go-between for the user and their natural environment.
The instrument is set up to be played across the lap or on the stands while in the wind, the game is to tune each string and pay attention to how the wind reacts with it.
Through observing each string and how the wind is behaving the aim is to get all the strings singing in a pleasant cacophony of harmonic tone.
Fred graduated in Summer 2019 from Hereford College of Art
BA Hons Artist Blacksmithing
