The composition is based on wind recordings made in The Hague and Leiden, The Netherlands during the Winter 2011. Contribution to the radio show Broadcasting Den Haag, produced at the Institute of Sonology for Framework Radio. Curated by Raviv Ganchrow and Patrick McGinley.
The original source recordings focussed on auditory impressions created by the interaction of wind with the urban environment. Wind in ‘itself’ seems a too elusive phenomena for being 'captured'. The principles of most conventional microphones are based on a diaphragm which moves accordingly to air pressure variations, something which easily results in distortion when strong wind blows directly on them. These recordings were based on indirect listening, using unconventional transducers to tap into the action of wind propagated through non-air mediums (i.e. underwater and solid architectural structures).
The piece was also released in the double CD compilation SOUND-IN 2012, published for the 1st Sound-In Programme for New Creators at Estampa, Spanish Multiple Art Fair in Madrid, October 2012.
The composition is based on rain and snowfall recordings made at multiple locations in Spain and The Netherlands between 2008 and 2012. Composed in Den Haag in the Summer 2012.
