“Pain Piano” is a sound design Kontakt library based on prepared piano experiments. Silence+Other Sounds have recorded a large collection of pianos including Mornington & Weston, a Collard piano from the 19th century, an old saloon-piano and even a piano harmonium, a one of a kind instrument combining a traditional piano with an harmonium apparatus.
Prepared Piano Slams & Rhythms For Horror Music & FX (Kontakt & WAV)
All of the instruments in “Pain Piano” have been meticulously recorded by experimenting with a variety of objects on the strings to explore the endless sonic possibilities of the piano: snare tails, metallic sticks, screws, aluminium sheets, large cardboard panels have been used to carve out a unique horror SFX instrument that will set your cinematic productions apart.
Horrific timbres, eerie atonal tones, stinging notes and hair-raising stabs are only a small part of the sounds you will find in Pain Piano!
