Windjam, James Caldicott 2008

Resident artist, James Caldicott, was commissioned to create Windjam for the May 2008 Brighton Fringe Festival. Seven wind powered musical instruments were exhibited alongside a video of their sonic recordings made Embassy Court over the preceding months. The hybrid instrument weather vane devices plucked strings , hit drums and even span singing bowls to create an audio track completely reliant on the elements. James won the 2008 Brighton Festival Fringe Awards for best 3D art and best Visual Art.
