    Great Idea.

    Where next we wonder. What with all them 'Wind Turbines' they are threatening to engulf the landscapes with, maybe I will sneak out some midnight and see if one is playable. Need a special mouthpiece for it though (and a crash helmet in case I get clattered on the nut with one of them big propellers!) If some bible black night you all hear a ghostly eerie whirring 'DIN' don't worry none, it will be me, out on the moors improvising on a 'Wind Turbine' on the theme of Woody Herman's 'Blowing Up A Storm!'

    Oh I see well as I have said before I am a pure acoustic devotee with the exception of the Vibraphone which receives only a wee bit of assistance.

    Actually, electronic wind instruments have been fairly popular for quite a while now. Take EWI for example:
