SonicCouture GEOSONICS v1.2 KONTAKT | 5.53 Gb
Geosonics is a collaboration between legendary field recordist Chris Watson and Soniccouture; a library of rare sonic artefacts that cannot be found anywhere else. Sound-design textures are layered with Watson's original recordings to create the most fluid, organic soundscapes ever.
Play sounds from places like the North Pole or the Kalahari desert on a simple MIDI keyboard: a magical experience, only possible with Geosonics. Wind - silent in itself, it only reveals itself sonically once it hits something. Chris Watson buried hydrophones deep in sand dunes, repurposing the under-water recording devices to function in deep desert depths. A hollowed out Acacia tree was fitted with contact mics and the musical moaning sounds of the wind in its trunk were captured, and the railings on an abandoned air-base form the basis of a sinister sound-scape.
The main Instrument panel features 2 modes: Natural Mode (FOCUS off) + Sound Design Mode (FOCUS on). In 'Natural Mode' (shown above) it is possible to audition and scan through the original Watson recording file. Different sections of the file can be played on the MIDI keyboard, and filters and envelopes applied if desired. In this mode no pitched sample layers are available, only one original field recording.
