Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Space inspire creation in an entirely new way this time, by taking the form and shape of musical instruments. EarthMoments is proud to present 5Elements, an innovative library of instruments inspired by the very elements that make our world, made for Kontakt and the free Kontakt Player.
Early this year, EarthMoments launched a series of virtual instruments called 5Elements, which features 8 unique handmade instruments crafted and designed by Svaram Musical Instruments & Research situated in Auroville, South India. We caught up with Aurelio C. Hammer, founder of Svaram to tell us all about his inspiration behind creating musical instruments.
After the release of the 5Elements, Sound on Sound raved that the new virtual instrument “allows for a wide range of inspirational sounds that evolve in tonality and include shifting overtones, scrapes or other organic components.” The magazine continued by describing the instruments as “pure magic” and “deliciously exotic.”
