AAS newcomer Michel Basque presents Transmutation — a 101-preset sound collection for Chromaphone 3. Basque approaches sounds as instruments by themselves with great attention to details, playability, and balance.
Real instruments are evoked with fresh creative twists — crystalline mallets and bells, futuristic neo-classical keys, exotic and hybrid acoustic strings, filmic guitars, and gritty mutant pads abound. From all times and places — exotic, traditional, electronic — this miscellanea balances real and surreal textures with a strong lively quality that captures the prominent essence of Chromaphone 3.
While ideal for cinematic climaxes or otherworldly soundscapes production, more conventional creations benefit from a very organic boost of intensity and emotion. Transmutation sonically reflects on a world in the throes of profound changes, a rapidly mutating ecosystem transforming us all.
