A Squamish Wind blows by Bowen Island

The weather has become cold, dry and windy. Yesterday afternoon, while a Squamish Wind was howling down Howe Sound from the Mountains to the North, I went for a short walk on Bowen Island with a hand-held Sony PCM-D50 stereo audio recorder. This is what I heard:

It was an experiment to see if the wind screen would allow the microphones to be useful under those conditions. If you are alone, turn up the speakers. If not, use headphones.

{edited on 2011 Dec 20. The link to Archive.org with the contents of the audio file was broken. I think that Archive.org have made changes to their site. I’ve edited the link and the audio player (above) is working again. BTW, the kind of wind screen that I’m using is not a pop-filter, it is called, by audio engineers, a dead cat.

    worked amazingly well! Your voice is always clear. And so is the sound of the wind when you are not speaking! And I love the sounds of the doors.
