Video

Here is the video from a session where I improvised a new soundscape called “. This was improvised on Ableton Live 10 with Push 2.

Sources Samples

While I mostly do my own sound design I’ve been enjoying using libraries from others to introduce pleasant surprises (“chance operations”) into some of my improvisational pieces. All the source samples for this song are from the Ghosts sound pack which I bought from my friend and independent New Zealand based sound designer Greg Cole (aka Empty Vessel https://store.emptyvessel.co.nz ).

This was originally released as a samples and presets for the TAL sampler, but I brought these into Ableton (notes on this below).

Greg takes such great care in producing and mastering his source samples I’m happy to report he also just provided these samples as a stand-alone WAV edition here https://store.emptyvessel.co.nz/p/cl3h5w.
