Phil Dadson: Spida Nebula is a playable sculpture, tuned in 19 tone equal temperament, using PVC irrigation pipes plus twelve short lengths of chromatic, just-tuned aluminium pipes and six stainless steel cymbal-gongs.
Phil Dadson: Akau Tangi consists of 10 stripe painted poles, each supporting a kinetic conical element that vanes with wind direction and spins on its axis according to wind speed, producing dynamo-operated LED lighting that brightens or dulls according to wind speed. Aeolian flute and whistle tones are produced from each of the 10 sculptures by wind-driven flutes at the cowl end of each form.
Phil Dadson: Conference of Drums consists of 7 carved slit-drum poles, each with tuned wooden and steel tynes projecting from the outside edges of the centrally located slit-drums, which double as resonator / amplifiers. A set of long wires span the edges of the 7 slit-drum amplifiers, to be played as part of the ensemble. Aeolian wind tones are also produced by breezes through the vertically strung wires and by edge-tone activation of the slit drum cavities.
