THEPHONOLOOP released recently a new experimental sample library with the name Texture Mozaik.01, an instrument inspired by the sound design techniques used by some of the film and experimental composers from the 50s to the 70s. The library comes with over 11GB of samples and over 120 different sound sources. All this is backed in a full featured newly scripted interface for the Kontakt 5 sampler.
The name of the instrument suggests that it’s mainly focused on the textures – and yes, it’s designed to mix 2 or 3 sound sources to create evolving, old school sounds, but due to the amount of tonal sound sources available in Texture Mozaik, it’s definitely much more than just a ‘background generator’. In fact, as you can hear in the audio demos, Texture Mozaik is perfectly capable of creating melodic parts or even creating main harmony for the production (no other instruments than Texture Mozaik were used in audio demos).
Texture Mozaik contains over 120 unique sound sources all inspired by the sounds of the past when recording on tapes, cutting them, then gluing and looping, passing through spring reverbs, etc. was on the agenda.
You’ll find gloomy, dirty sounds but also subtle, delicate ones which can be complementary to these. For example, one of the sounds included in Texture Mozaik is a bowed acoustic guitar whose strings were connected by a spring with a metal pot hanging on a tripod – which worked as an additional resonator. You will also find a lot of classic sounds such as violin, chromatic bells, bowed saw, flute and more. As always, all included sounds were passed through several different cassette decks.
