Strong wind gusts (60 km/h and above) hitting vegetation, glasses in streetlights, and everything around. Locally known as 'Levante' this powerful Eastern wind, tunneled through nearby Gibraltar Strait, may last for many weeks and make normal people absolutely crazy (even though it is loved by windsurfers and kitesurfer). Recorded at night in Bolonia inlet beach (Cadiz, S Spain), using a Shure WL183 mic capsule pair inside windscreens, a Fel preamp, and Edirol R09 recorder. Had to edit the 24-bit original and remove a number of distorted seconds, but unaltered otherwise. Technically, this sample is among the hardest I ever made.
