FANTASY APPARATUS AND KINETIC ENGINES

This library contains sounds from 23 multi-miced kinetic machines and wounderous apparatus split into mixdowns and construction kits of each machinery. The mechanisms have been designed and build by and recorded in collaboration with the kinetic artist Willi Reiche in a quiet setting at the Kunstmaschinenenhalle.
.
Spinning gears, squeaky leather belts, grinding metal, humming motors, tonal elements and rattling parts construct an imaginative factory ambience. It can be perfectly used to design a magical lab, an inventor workshop or a steam punk industrial complex. Of course any tiny to big gear and machines can be brought to live with these sounds. You can easily layer different parts from various machines to create the desired mood and characteristic of your visuals or story.
.
There are both electric machines driven by servo motors and machines that have to be handled by hand. Additional emf content has been captured from the electronic devices.
.
Gear used: Up to 10 microphones have been used on each machine, including Schoeps MK41 / CMC1, Dpa 4060, Neumann KMR81i, Earthworks QTC50, AKD D112, Lewitt 540s, Ambient ASF1 and EMF microphones.

About Sound of Essen

About Sound of Essen

Sound of Essen is a project by Nils Mosh, a field recordist, a sound artist and designer from Essen, Germany. In his works, he explores the spirit of sound from various locations. He always listens to the places in their social context and examines them for the interaction between nature and human-made influences. And in between, he simply opts out of the world and falls in love with the sound of the resonances of a handrail or the delicate chirping of a water beetle. In 2017 his recording „Das Team“ won 2nd price at the international radio award "60 seconds" in Canada. Besides recording in the territory of the wolf GW954f from 2019-2022 for the release „Of wolves and people“ (Gruenrekorder 214) with Melissa Pons, he presented sound art work at festivals like Tonwelten Festival (2023), Blaues Rauschen Festival (2023) or Weimarer Sommer (2018). He collaborated with dance & perfomance artists for performances in Montreal, Tel Aviv and across Germany. He also lectures about field recording at the universities in Darmstadt & Duesseldorf. Besides his sound art & field recording work, he also runs the blog Sound of Essen and sells sound effects for games & movies. His focus is on local sounds, which he explores with his deep knowledge of these specific sounds and which are sometimes hard to get in other places of the world. His libraries range from local animals to unique aircrafts and farming machines.
