Wind Textures III

Wind Textures III highlights a new palette of wide sounding wind effects recorded over two years, from high mountain ridges to marshes and grasslands.

  • Featuring the levante, also known as the famous easterly wind that blows in the western Mediterranean Sea, which is a dominant feature in the province of Cadiz, Spain.
  • This set of recordings includes winds blasting marshes and several types of vegetation, as well as recordings from a car interior.
  • Blustery winds in montane grasslands and high mountain ridges from the Guadarrama Mountains in Central Spain.
  • In the heights of this nature reserve are prairies in which high mountain shrubs dominate the terrain. This includes several types of leaves rustling.
  • Unless it’s specified in the filename, all recordings are bird and insect free.
  • Intensity varies from calm breezes to gusts of up to 80 km/h.
  • Wind blasting a motorbike captured from inside a helmet with no engine noise at all. The visor was in three different positions (open, half way open and closed) in order to get a wider variety of sounds.
  • These sounds can be used for any type of object, animal or vehicle in motion where wind plays an important role in terms of storytelling.
