93. Can you really hear wind?

Post by bjkwon » June 14th, 2020, 7:43 pm

Howling, whistling, rattling... there are many words to describe the sound of wind. But wait, does the wind have a sound? Those sounds simply came from the interactions between the wind and objects. "Howling wind," for example, describes the nature of the howling structure (perhaps the gutter of your house) in the wind, rather than the wind itself. Sometimes the sound is so fascinating we are tempted to record it by putting a bare microphone mid-air in the wind. But it's like, impressed with amazing works of shadow art, trying to point a camera toward the light, not the ingenuous display.
