The Celestial Harp is an innovative new musical instrument.

These are some of the earliest recordings on the Celestial Harp. They were mostly done in 1987! They were recorded onto 1/2 inch reel to reel format, and eventually converted into the digital used here. The tuning system was experimental and a work in progress.
The focus of these recordings was to present various techniques of playing.
