Go back to SARU (Sonic Art Research Unit) homepage

Max Eastley is currently a Research Fellow in the Sonic Art Research Unit at Oxford Brookes University. The title of Eastley’s research project is Aeolian Sound: An investigation of Aeolian Phenomena and their incorporation into Sonic Culture. An Aeolian Phenomenon is the activation of sound through the action of the wind – or other environmental forces – on natural materials. The sounds created by these phenomena have captivated novelists including Vladimir Nabokov and Thomas Hardy; composers including Henry Cowell and Frederic Chopin; and poets Percy Byshe Shelley in his ‘Ode to the Western Wind’ and Samuel Taylor Coleridge: ’Not to love all things in a world so fill’d’.
The Max Eastley RADAR collection will slowly reveal articles from Max Eastley's archive of research into Aeolian Phenomena, as well as new projects created specifically throughout his tenure in the SARU.
