light wind sound sketch

Ambient track inspired by my first winter here in Iceland. It is a work in progress and part of a project about winter. Small problem at the end on the winder soundscape loop ! The main moving sound is a field recording of the wind processed through 5 carefully tuned band pass filers and a clever comb filter. The levels and pannings of this sound are controlled by an iPad Lemur App with a custom OSC layout using self-generated movements.continue reading →
