木々のざわめき – Leaves Choir

Download Here

Wind is one of those hard-to-capture sounds for me personally mostly because of the location or lack of wind when I manage to escape Tokyo. In this occasion, however, i was lucky.  I was heading towards Honzawa onsen with a few friends, and once we arrived by car at the bottom of the trail early in the morning, the wind was gloriously blowing through the trees. While everyone else was taking a nap before the hike, I with excitement headed into the first patch of thick forest and recorded a long take of the beautiful sound of wind shaking the surrounding leaves.

Here is an interesting post about how to record wind by Gordon Hempton, a sound recordist that dedicated most of his life to acoustic ecology.

    1. Hello there, first of all thanks for stopping by and I’m glad you enjoyed it.
      To be very honest with you I don’t really know what is the ‘hoot’ sound you hear in the recording. I thought it was an owl of some sort while recording, but I asked few people on that trip and no one could give me an answer. Since I was surrounded only by trees, my guess is a bird but I’m not ornithologist so I’m sorry I can’t give an answer.

  1. Good timing for me – we have high winds today, and I couldn’t capture them in any of the photos for my blog. Now I know, the answer is sound-recording.

    1. Hey Karolyn, I’m sure you can find a cheap recorder or microphone to plug into your camera. So I’m looking forward to hear some of your takes. In the meanwhile happy new year! Namaste!
