Sounding Place: Windchimes in a storm | DESARTSONNANTS - CRÉATION SONORE ET ENVIRONNEMENT - ENVIRONMENTAL SOUND ART - PAYSAGES ET ECOLOGIE SONORE | Scoop.it

made this set of windchimes from old railroad spikes I found along the tracks. It's the second such set I've made. The first ones I hung in a tree beside the tracks and I hear them when I walk past there sometime. I selected 8 spikes that were very close in pitch so that they would have more of a microtonal character than a melodic one. This recording was made at 3:30 am as a storm was blowing through. My neighbor's chimes create a nice duet with mine. I'm also happy with the wind sound on this recording. I recorded through the screen door to capture the sound of the wind without having it distorting the mics.
