AudioThing releases Environments - Temple of Mercury (Kontakt)
      #1018648 - 14/11/12 11:54 PM


Environments is a series of sample libraries inspired by our research in sound environments and the relationship of sound and space.

Environments "Temple of Mercury" features sound gestures from a corrugated plastic pipe and the impulse response of the Temple of Mercury, a wide caldera situated in the west of Naples (Italy). The Temple is also known as "The Echo Temple" for its several acoustic reflections caused by a dome vault and water on the floor. The sampled instrument produces flute, horn, efxs, impulsive sounds, and, with a little electroacoustic modification, feedback sounds; all sounds are playable with or without the convolution of the Temple.

This library was inspired by a video by Salvatore Carannante, a musician who plays common or recycled everyday objects as a way of interacting with the acoustic space: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXLk7tLyBbQ
