THEPHONOLOOP has announced the release of Texture Mozaik.01, a Kontakt instrument library inspired by the sound design techniques used by some of the film and experimental composers from between 50s to 70s.
Designed to mix 2 or 3 sound sources to create evolving, old school sounds, the instrument is mainly focused on the textures. Due to the amount of tonal sound sources available in Texture Mozaik, it has much more to offer than just a ‘background generator’.
In fact, as you can hear in available audio demos, Texture Mozaik is perfectly capable of creating melodic parts or even creating main harmony for the production (no other instruments than Texture Mozaik were used in audio demos).
Texture Mozaik contains over 120 unique sound sources all inspired by the sounds of the past when recording on tapes, cutting them, then gluing and looping, passing through spring reverbs, etc. was on the agenda.
You’ll find here gloomy, dirty sounds but also those subtle, delicate ones which can be complementary to these first. For example, one of the sounds included in Texture Mozaik is an bowed acoustic guitar whose strings were connected by a spring with a metal pot hanging on a tripod – which worked as an additional resonator. You will also find here a lot of classic sounds such as violin, chromatic bells, bowed saw, flute and more. As always, all included sounds were passed through several different cassette decks.
