I'm doing a sound design / composing gig which should have a wintery feeling but it shouldn't be associated with christmas. What kind of sounds do you associate with winter? Which instruments and what sound effects? Have your eyes closed in a well lit space and imagine. The mood should be positive and not too dreamy nor too active. No jingle bells and ho-ho-hos or just footsteps on snow. The icy feeling is pretty easy to accomplish but I'm looking for something more subtle.
