NO SYNTHESIZER USED. Just flutes and field recordings (wind)

Here I try to recreate from my memory the sound of the wind in the mountains, more precisely in some high altitude trekking spots in Patagonia, Argentina.
That sound that fills the surrounding silence, almost “silent sound” in terms of decibels, but one that can be deafening loud as a presence , completing the landscapes in such an hypnotic way. Soothing and strong, peaceful and wild.

Two bamboo flutes performed by DD in Paris, December 8th 2017 in the morning.
