A stereo piezoelectric (contact) microphone recording of a bridge.

The bikers-bridge over the A59 highway has a railing made of aluminium bars, connected with steel poles on the concrete bridge. During the years these bars loose a little and make a nice sound in the wind. Every time it is windy I wondered how to record this sound. Now, during a 3-4 bft wind, I have recorded this sound with two (stereo) 5cm piezoelectric contact mics. The traffic is audible to.
In Audacity I did some equalizing.

More piezo recordings search on ' klankbeeld piezo '.

When you use this sound it would be nice if you spent a voluntarily donation to freesound.
YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO CREDIT/ATTRIBUTE me (klankbeeld) and freesound.org in your work if you use this sound. Do it like this: sound from http://www.freesound.org/people/klankbeeld/

    This is excellent. I intend to use it as sound heard by an astronaut through his spacesuit.
