Waves of Wind

Artist: Jacob Bentz
Arizona, USA

This was my very first recording expedition. There were several places I wanted to check out over two days and this was the first stop. It was springtime, and I wanted to record birdsong with water in the background. I thought this place would be a good candidate.

I got there in the midst of an intense windstorm. At first I was disappointed at the lack of birdsong, but then I noticed how the wind sounded blowing through the tall cottonwood trees. It sounded just like waves at the beach.
