Wind Elements – Interior is 75 minutes/2.43 Gb of howling, blasting and fluttering wind, recorded from inside various buildings. 90 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz using Sennheiser MKH & Primo EM172 microphones, and mastered in X/Y stereo.
This collection is the bigger, badder sequel to bestseller Howling Winds – Interior, with more of everything: fresh recordings, more types of wind, more locations and just more variation.
Everything from violent blasting and howling, to gentle, caressing wind. Some with sleet and rain, cracking and creaking of window frames and roof materials, others with faint sound of rustling leaves or urban buzz.
You get both long ambiances from various locations, as well as plenty of short files to sweeten up your mix.
Some sounds have been eq'ed aggressively to enhance the feeling of being indoors, but very little processing has been applied otherwise. You'll hear a bit of hiss here and there; I left it in because I felt noise reduction would take away too much character in those specific cases.
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 filmaker 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.
