This little beast is a very, very eerie and dark collection of metallic percussive and semimelodic effects, ideal for use in horror and suspend scoring, sound design, trailer effects and post production, experimental and ambient music, or anything else you can think to do with it.
The origins of the strange creation/discovery will remain a forbidden secret – even though Soundiron had a contest where over 130 people tried to guess its origins. What they can tell you is that they beat and played the hell out of it… or in to it, depending on how you look at it. They used bows, mallets, metal rods, rubber balls, fingers, fists, drum sticks, nylon, metal brushes and rasps.
Soundiron used viola bows on various edges of the throne to create eerie melodic and dissonant tones. There are several types of bowed instrument sets included, including long sustains, medium length gliss effects, short staccato and spiccato notes and tremelo sustain.
The finger, rubber ball and flat mallet rubs were created by dragging the edge of the mallets (or fingers) along various surfaces on the throne. This causes it to resonate in a similar fashion to a gong. The mallet strikes were produced with wooden, felt and metal tipped mallets and sticks, to produce standard metal percussion sets. Generally, the results are atonal, but with pitch stepping/shifting, these instruments can be played semi-melodically.
