Galbanum has announced its Abstraction Sample Line, a new downloadable series of "ultramodern" samples, loops, hits, and construction kits provided in industry standard formats including Apple Loops, Acid Loops, REX2, AIFF, and WAV.
The first release in this series, Abstraction 01, focuses on unconventional atonal loop-adders, rhythmic textures, glitched-out underground sounds, and unusual percussion hits which are designed to be mixed with conventional music elements to synergistically co-create tomorrow's post-modern platinum grooves. Abstraction 01 content is suitable for Minimal House, Minimal Techno, Minimal Trance, Electro House, Tech House, Progressive House, Deep House, Progressive Trance, DnB and Breaks, Ambient and Chill Out, Glitch Hop, Trip Hop, Electronica and IDM, Left Field, Abstract Rock, Film and Game Scoring, Sound FX, and any other cross-genre music style that successfully borrows from these influences.
Abstraction Sample Line Concept
Modern electronic and urban music production is highly dependent on technical sound-design elements to infuse novelty and uniqueness into the music of today and tomorrow. Modish sound-design elements define style and are what makes a given project in-the-now. A posh groove and a stupendous shock-and-awe campaign of information-age sonic non-conformities are prerequisite to success in today's market. The Abstraction Sample Line is designed to advance these bleeding-edge sound-design elements and make them effortlessly accessible without requiring a PhD in rocket science or esoteric digital signal processing.
To further accomplish this goal and stay perpetually in-the-now, Abstraction Sample Line products are available for instant direct download from Galbanum's web-store. This ensures that the contents stay fresh and stylistically up-to-date, and allows the product line to be regularly updated with inexpensive additions and expansions. Physical distribution is also planned for early 2008.
Electronic musicians, artists, producers, DJs, scoring professionals, multi-media developers, and synthesis/sound-design enthusiasts of all experience levels who are looking for an easy way to escape the sonic banality of the overpopulated "me-too" market and embrace the unexpected will find this collection an invaluable coup de theatre. Anyone looking for a new way to tip the balance between musical predictability and surprise will find it here in this treasure chest of perturbations, anomalies, and sonic eccentricities.
