Wind Textures features blowy and breezy ambiences, both in urban and rural areas as well as outdoor and indoor perspectives.
- Urban areas include recordings from backyards, empty streets and parks. Free of traffic and birds, you will hear trees creaking, twigs fluttering, leaves rustling, branches crackling, distant impacts, deep and long gusts and the whole space whistling and squeaking.
- Rural areas: on the top of cliffs, in the middle of a forest, bushes rustling.
- Indoor perspectives with wind howling and whistling through windows as well as a contact mic placed in chimneys and windows.
- Wind fluttering vegetation: orange trees, shrubs, corn fields, dry leaves, fig trees.
- Wind against plastic textures and raincoats.
- From a calm breeze to gusts of up to 100 kmh.
- 26 files from outdoors and another 26 from indoor perspectives.
