«In native basque - Euskara - language, an 'Ola' is a forge or a mill, used in ancient times to melt the ore which was abundant in that northeastern part of Iberia. There were several types of 'Olas', 'Urolas' - your typical water-mill, 'Jentiolas' - related to basque mythology, and 'Aizeolas' which are perhaps the most common of 'Olas', powered by the wind. Yes, wind mills, like the ones Don Quijote fought in his dreams, which were actually giants that the basque people called 'Jentils'.
Anyway, basque mythology aside, this piece that basque artist Oier Iruretagoiena offers us is pretty much made from wind field recordings that Oier captured in the coastal region of Uribe-Kosta, part of the Bizkaia province, hence the title 'Aizeola'.

This piece, while short, has several parts interconnected through moments of tense silence and suspended dramatism. The first moment is the most visceral one as we are left in the middle of a hurricane of unimaginable strenght. We can almost feel the earth shattering beneath this nature's power, rocks being thrown away into space, chaos everywhere we turn to. After that, the calm, and then again. A short but very intense experience.» - Pedro Leitão
