Parallelogram features recordings of metallic sculptures and objects. From colorful hits to soaring bowed pitches. _With immersive rich spectrums, strange reverberant properties and slow-moving harmonic motions  A variety of techniques were used to trigger different sounds. Including striking the sculptures at different points with sticks and mallets, bowing them with rosined bows, and rubbing to create friction sounds.

springs percussion

We stumbled upon the idea for this library when we visited an art exhibition with works from a friend of ours. The objects in question were built from a variety of metal parts, including wires, springs, steel rails. The artist had placed mallets on the sculpture, allowing visitors to create their own rhythms and melodies. 

The  mixer tracks has a channel strip where you may do additional tweaks. Channels can be routed to individual tracks in your DAW.

CURRENT VERSION

initial release

Tom Waits once said ” … the hardware store has developed more pull for me than the music store. I always bring a couple of mallets and a violin bow with me – I get to hear things I’ve never seen before. All hardware items must be admired for their sonic properties….they’re all waiting to be played”.
