Das enorme Kreativpotential, das in vielen Instrumenten der Library steckt, sucht seinesgleichen. Eric Persing und seine Crew haben sich in puncto Klangdesign selbst übertroffen. Aufwand und Mühen wurden dabei nicht gescheut, man denke nur an die Schlauchbootfahrt durch eine Höhlenlandschaft, mit dem Ziel, den Klang von Stalaktiten als tonale Percussion einzufangen.
