Gahlord Dewald decided to do a test run of his Kaleookauila Series while we were in Hawaii, and I couldn’t be more thankful. The Kaleookauila Series was inspired by the sound of power lines in the valley of the Wa‘ahila Ridge Trail, where the concert occurred. Gahlord first experienced the sounds with his friend, Ananddev Banerjee, who was also in attendance last night. When Gahlord heard the sounds, he was almost instantly reminded of the Aeolian harp. The Aeolian harp is a musical instrument that is “played” by the wind, which initiates harmonic resonances to create the harp’s often eerie sound.
The performance was a beautiful experience. Gahlord powered the performance using a short range FM transmitter. Each of us listened via headphones as he mixed the sounds collected from the very area we were sitting. I laid back for most of the performance. I couldn’t take my eyes off of the trees. It felt as if they were dancing to the music. It was relaxing, and meditative. Perfect.

The setting was beautiful. And I can’t help but highlight a photo Rocky captured of Gahlord during the performance. I got a picture of her taking it; her image is the last one presented here. Nicely done! It was a wonderful experience. Thank you, Gahlord.
