What's in the box?

This is the first outing of a new granular re-synthesis based Reaktor ensemble I am working on codenamed “BD”.

The track is generated by 4 instances of the ensemble (playing different samples), panned by CamelSpace, with lashings of Valhalla Shimmer on top.

The samples used in the ensemble are (a) an ambient drone, (b) a bassline, (c) chanting, and (d) a childs laughter.

The ensemble itself is still very primitive and I haven’t learned what controls will work best for it yet, not to mention it’s not really doing quite what I want. There’s a lot to do in particular around playing chords. Basically it needs a lot of work but I’m putting this track down as a starting point.

I don't know, but I'm glad I'm not in there with it. Weirdly wonderful sounds there! Seriously, Happy Christmas Sandbags!

Hey Igor. Yeah there's something a little disturbing about those shrill shrieks towards the end, kind of like some flying be-tentacled monsters happily chasing their prey ;-)

Not bad for or to fill in the chase scene, for example. To be continued...? Think I will ask you for a samples.
