On a Windy Day

The Red Queen's race is an incident that appears in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass and involves the Red Queen, a representation of a Queen in chess, and Alice constantly running but remaining in the same spot.     "Well, in our country," said Alice, still panting a little, "you'd generally get to somewhere else — if you run very fast for a long time, as we've been doing."     "A slow sort of country!" said the Queen. "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

Consider the music a 2.5 hour (350 megabyte) electric aeolian harp equivalent of a wind chime thanks to an extended high wind event. The wind gets very strong at times and really pushes some high harmonics out with high string tinkles and hum and beating. At times it sounds like someone is actually sweeping the strings like a harp arpeggio.

Feel free to sample and use as long as I get a mention and I’d really like to hear what you come up with too!
