Wind Tree will turn wind into turntablism

“Wind Tree” by Elliot Montgomery connects a custom built turbine with a record player so that the blowing wind actually drove the turntable to spin causing the resulting sound to slow down or speed up depending on the available gusts. This project was built during a workshop at Solar One, “a New York-based center devoted to promoting “green energy, arts, and education which works to break down the barriers between energy users and energy makers.”
