Toys After Dark is a glimpse into what's going in the toy factory after closing time. It is a playful and experimental soundset based on circuit-bent toys and musical instruments, such as math toys, old Casio keyboards and talking toys such as the Furby.
imagine the sounds inside a
toy factory at night.
While the purpose of circuit-bending is to bring out new sounds and textures from simple electronics - the nature of circuit-bended gear are generally chaotic, crazy, wacky, weird, noisy and often completely bonkers. Trying to make sense of circuit-bended sounds is an exercise in patience, but that what we did with this soundset. Omnisphere 2 comes loaded with an extensive library of circuit-bent sounds and we spent quite some time listening though all the recordings for the most interesting parts. Armed with a collection of cool sounds, we started putting together our own sounds: rhythmic loops, tonal single sounds, textures and even drum loops.
All of the tonal singles have been tuned to make sense in a musical context - as much as a circuit-bent sound can be tuned - as are many of the loops and sequences. But to keep the chaotic vibe of circuit-bending some of the rhythmical material were not tuned.
Together with the single sounds we also created 50 multi sounds where created even more complex sounds and advanced rhythmic loops.
