What is wind and how does it shape the way we listen? This program commissioned by France Culture examines the nature and impact of wind upon some of the most remote parts of the world. It reveals the intensity of an Antarctic blizzard, the sound of drought in the South Australian wilderness, and the effects of wildfire in the Kimberley. It explores the transformative quality of wind to convey new knowledge and experience of the natural and built environment and their attendant communities. Through these recordings a hidden, dystopian history is revealed that connects the present to the future.
