The Sounds of Wind


Wind in a Hornbeam Hedge

On a windy morning in May I tucked my microphone array into a hornbeam hedge at the edge of a field in North Leigh, Oxfordshire, UK. As well as the sound of the air movement, you can hear the leaves rattling in the stronger gusts.

A Sea Wind in Dune Grass

The tall dry dune grasses on the shore at Bradwell on Sea, Essex, UK make their own distinct sound in the strong sea wind. I placed my microphones at ground level on a path immediately down wind of a large area of grass.
