Historical wind machine (c. 1900) at the Konzerthaus in Ravensburg
The wind machine (also called aeoliphone) is a specialist musical instrument used to produce the sound of wind. One type uses an electric fan with wooden slats added to produce the required sound. More frequently, a drum covered in fabric is rubbed against wooden or cardboard rods when a handle is turned, making a swooshing sound.
Classical works that use the instrument:
