Sounds of Beauty & Wonder

Glass / Works is a Kontakt player instrument which collects together 3 extremely unusual and rare musical instruments which use glass to generate sound : Le Cristal Baschet, The Glass Armonica, and a set of Cloud Chamber Bowls.

Just locating these instruments was a challenge in itself - the third in the collection, Cloud Chamber Bowls, proved so elusive that after a lot of research and enquiries, Soniccouture realised that if they wanted to sample some, they would have to build a set theirselves. The first two instruments - Le Cristal and the Glass Armonica, as strange and beautiful as each other - required them to make a trip to Paris, to the studio of Thomas Bloch.
