Moving Winds

Contact microphones provide a unique way of hearing the world. They work by picking up vibrations of what ever they are attached too. As the wind was blowing a gail I decided to capture the sound of sand particles hitting a tin with contact microphones. This is what that sounds like.

After that recording I attached the microphone to some Ficinia Nodosa (knobby club-rush) that was blowing in the wind. This plant is commonly found through out the coastal area’s of Australia. Below is a video of the recording.
