AIR RELEASE SOUND EFFECTS

This flamboyant and diverse library is a collection of recordings of air flows, leaks, bursts, plops, hisses, wooshes, suctions and blows. I started recording these noises when I needed a basis for a magic spell sound and then realized that the sounds also work very well as a layer in fly bys (or all kind of pass bys), weapons / bullets and other sci fi elements like doors & machines. And of course you can use the sounds for the objects that emitted them.
.
A lot of objects were recorded that first come on everyones mind, like canned air / co2, bicycle pumps, boat pumps and the opening of soda bottles. But also more exceptional products were captured, like a fog machine, syringes, medical nebulator / inhaler and more. I also recorded quite a lot of vents, fans, hvac and some more tonal whistles or water boilers like the famous Alessi. There are also air releases into water, so a lot of wet textures, spray paint, desinfection spray ( and all kind of plastic bottles with various sealing caps and and and. One of my favourite sounds in this collection is a malfunctioning garden hose. Air flow leaked through a tiny hole and depending on the pressure my hand put on the ventile different tones and sounds occured.
.
The selection offers everything from very short, to medium long sounds, loops and long air releases. Most sounds were recorded from multiple mic perspectives. While the directional mics deliver clean direct sounds, omnidirectional Eartworks QTC50 capture high frequency sounds up to above 80kHz, that invite to pitch or slow down the sounds and create otherworldy atmospheres or woosh sounds. Some sounds were also recorded underwater with an ASF1 hydrophone.

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.
