I’m staying at my grandparents place over the weekend. They live at a farm in the countryside near Göteborg. In a field, visible from their house, is this big old rusty piece of machinery once used to dig ditches. It must have been standing there for at least 10 years but for some reason I’ve never really examined it. Today was a windy day so I decided to go over there with my contact mic and see what kind of sounds this bulky pile of metal emitted when assisted by the wind.

A sample from one of the recordings made today:

Geek note: Homebuilt piezo contact mic -> Sony PCM-D50
