Otherworldly Sounds


Native Instruments today have introduced Sonic Fiction which they tell us is a new KORE-Powered instrument that combines inventive field recording with advanced synthesis into an arsenal of hundreds of genuinely otherworldly sounds. Designed by prolific sound design artist Jeremiah Savage and usable with KORE 2 and the free KORE PLAYER, NI say that the instrument provides musicians and producers with a inspirational resource for movie and game scoring, modern sound design and various electronic music styles.
Here's more details directly from the NI press release...
Expanding on sound design paradigms established with Jeremiah Savage's previous ACOUSTIC REFRACTIONS collection, the sounds in SONIC FICTION are inspired by imaginative Science Fiction scenarios and concepts. Unusual, complex acoustic sources ranging from volcanic mudpots to television static were carefully captured in extensive field recording sessions, and combined with the vast synthesis and sound processing capabilities of ABSYNTH, KONTAKT and KORE. The result is an array of previously unheard, charismatic instruments that are both alien and organic in their sonic character, but also highly playable and of profound musical value.
SONIC FICTION provides 100 KoreSounds with eight morphable Sound Variations each, resulting in 800 individual sounds. Concise parameter assignments allow for immediate, intuitive sound tweaking in KORE 2 and KORE PLAYER. Full musical metadata for all presets also makes SONIC FICTION integrate seamlessly with any individual collection of KORE-Powered instruments.
Here's a video of Jeremiah Savage explaining the concept and design process of SONIC FICTION:
