Urban Winds

$26 $22.10

Urban Winds is 49 minutes / 1.33 GB of medium and high-wind sounds in 38 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz M/S stereo (decoded to X/Y stereo and mono), using Sennheiser MKH micophones.

You get empty streets and construction sites, office exteriors and the port of Aarhus. You get plastic that flutters or thrashes, metal fences that clatter and vibrate, pipes and cavities resonating in the gusts. You get ambiances and specifics. I have tried to strike the balance between variety and nuance, to give you sound pros something to build a scene around. In that sense, this really is a construction kit of sorts.

You will hear very little human activity – other than distant traffic. I recorded mostly at night, and in large, undisturbed areas – and on one occasion in the aftermath of a violent storm (the kind that rips the tiles off the roofs). Had a good time standing in the relative safety of my doorway, recording stuff getting blasted down the street! All sounds were captured in Aarhus, Denmark.

Urban Winds gets you:

• Howling, moaning, whistling wind sounds
• Wind-battered city ambiances
• X/Y Stereo and Mono sounds (decoded from M/S)
• Metadata included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats

In some of the recordings, you will hear wind buffeting – more of the windscreen than the microphones – but there is some. In some cases, I opted to tame the most violent events, but others I left in. In many cases, wind noise reduction simply took away too much of the forcefulness, so I left it as is.

Some specifics appear in both mono and stereo versions, where the stereo version are X/Y derived from the M/S source files and the mono versions are simply the Mid channel. I did this because most people seem to prefer X/Y files for post-work, rather than M/S – but a down-mix of X/Y to mono would be inferior to using the original Mid-mic signal.

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.
