Online musical instrument: The Moonalith V2.0


fbimageblog

The Moonalith is an online digital musical instrument http://moonalith.mooncubedesign.com.au/. The concept is a continuation of my thought processes during the completion of my album Space and Light and thesis of the same title. Throughout my sound experiments, research and studio time, I became interested in the idea of creating my own musical instrument to further explore the limitless possibilities within songwriting, music and sound experimentation.

What’s New in V2.0: Moonalith V2.0 includes the introduction of ‘Moonalution’ which creates evolving/looping soundscapes, new sound samples on Voice I and III and the addition of volume/stop/mute controls.

Sounds of the Moonalith: The Moonalith consists of sounds within a seven note scale (C C# D# F F# G# A#) over three separate pitch ranges. All sounds are created in ProTools, each voice consisting of a variety of found sounds, samples and effects. All samples used in the Moonalith are created by Moon Cube Design and are CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) . Find more of Moon Cube Design’s CC0 1.0 Universal samples at Freesound.org.
