In R. Murray Schafer’s “The Soundscape” wind is described as devious and equivocal. Without its tactile pressure on the face or body we cannot even tell from what direction it blows. The wind therefore is not to be trusted.
This quiet clip presents a nicer view of wind as it makes its way through dried winter grass. The stillness of this moment is broken only by the sound of a nearby bee and birds in the background.

I somehow missed this post. I really like it – it could almost be the sound of the sea.
Thanks. I was reading Virginia Woolf’s The Waves at the time of this recording and so her description of the lethargic sounds of midday influenced my way of listening to this time of day. Funny that she wrote about the sound of the ocean and you can hear the sea in this post.
