These recordings of howling, whistling, moaning winds are somewhere in between ambiences and specifics. All are recorded stereo, but some are narrow perspectives of particularly vocal details; while others paint a slightly bigger picture. Some contain low-end movement which I opted not to edit out – in case it might be useful to someone.
Others were recorded at rather low gain, to allow for the maximum dynamic range of sudden blasts of wind. For this reason, some files have a slight amount of hiss – but the evocative wheezes and guttural moans are worth it, in my opinion. Metadata included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats

Curiosity is the driving force behind hzandbits.com – the brainchild of Christian Hagelskjær From.
What does this thing sound like? Does it have a sound? What happens if I…?
Just like legendary film maker Jørgen Leth likes to “see what happens” in his films, I like to “hear what happens” in the objects and environments around me. The curiosity to experience deeply what normally whizzes by in our daily lives, is what shapes the sound effects I record – but also the desire to create something which is useful for others.
I hope you will find my sounds useful in your projects – and that they will pique YOUR curiosity too.
