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.
