Sounds From The Smithy

Cinematique Instruments have released Experimental Box V2. Here's what they have to say...
This is the second part of our successful experimental section: The Experimental Box V2. This time we focuses on objects and elements we found in a smithy of an artist blacksmith. We created a nice mishmash of highly playable rhythms, textures and instruments which are perfect for writing music in an experimental and minimalist way or giving your music a special character.
We just spent some hours in a smithy and recorded everything we could our hands on (next time we´ll definitely spend some more time): Nails, anvils, grindstones, ferreous tools, metal shapes, tubes, resonating plates, rattling sheets and any kind of machines. We´ve beaten, scrubbed and rattled the material and objects with hands, metal or rubber hammer, sticks and iron bars and came out with a wonderful assortment of textures, morphing pads, weird percussion and undefined instruments.
