The Sahara is a very silent place... until wind blows!
We often hear wind as only wind, and find it a challenge to interpret and describe the vast variety of sound it can have: wind through the leaves, over the sea, throughout desert sands. In many languages, the vocabulary doesn't exist to accurately describe a sound. There are barely no names for timbres, meaning the colors of sound, such as 'white' noise. Take the sound of the Sahara Desert — now demonstrated to you — and its trickling of sand particles carried on dry, hot winds. What sound color could it be?
A few words about sound colours and myNoise generators. This sound generator is calibrated, which means that if sliders are all horizontal, its output will resemble to a a pink-like noise. Since this does not replicate the original sound recording, the default slider curve has been altered to recreate the audible environment of the Sahara. Now you understand how myNoise works: what you hear here is the result of a re-synthesis, controlled by the sliders. And as these sliders are under your control, you can experiment and recreate any sound color you want as well, including the many ones that haven't been named yet.
