Capturing 30Hz

Very light wind today so I tried recording the aerial mast in Whitireia Park aka Titahi Bay Transmitter

I could tell on headphones (and the meters) that there was a deep undulating rumble, but it is interesting to see in RX that it is centred around 30Hz….

I’ll revisit when there is a decent wind blowing – Tuesdays forecast is for 12m/s (today was 2-4m/s)
It will be interesting to see what frequency it vibrates at then…

I also captured some lovely impacts, gently hitting the cable with a rubber mallet…
Really strange beating in the decay!

Scary sign! Must get one for my studio…

Aeolian Buzz

I’ve owned a few of these “wind wands” since back when I recorded the SWISH TWO Library and you can see and hear them in the Making Of video for it, but despite my experiences with it I had never thought of trying it in strong wind as a buzzy Aeolian Harp!

This week we had 120kmph wind forecast so I tried it and it sounded wild… So it gkt mne thinking and half an hour later this happened:

Next step is to move the Tank Resonator into a more exposed position!
