Inscription.  Three works of art have been created to translate wind into sound. Using temperature changes and wind, these instruments create continually changing aural patterns. These instruments respond to subtleties in wind velocity and turbulence with many different tones and rhythms. Information delivered to programmed chips from an anemometer, wind vane and temperature sensor produces scores of music.

"The instruments sense electronically, manifest kinetically, and acoustically"- Zentz
