Vienna Instruments II: Elements
Standard Library - Click here for list of articulations
Water, metal, glass, and stone. Very special elements are used here for sound production. Vienna Instruments II: Elements is a sequel to the Horizon Series Library "Glass & Stones" and offers exciting new instruments such as the Bass Waterphone. With a diameter of 14 inches this instrument is considerably larger than the waterphone used in the original Vienna Symphonic Library's percussion editions. The larger number of sounding rods, their increased length, the bigger opening as well as the bigger resonating body with more water, furnish the musician with more unusual sonic possibilities and a wider variety of colors. The oversized Tam-tam with a diameter of more than 65 inches was treated with all the tricks of the trade, with a special nod to Stockhausen's opus "Mikrophonie" and beyond. It was struck, for example, with metal rods, cardboard, jigsaw blades, thrown at and rubbed with chains, and manhandled with fly swatters, an egg cutter, and even a massaging rod. The Bottles contained in Vienna Instruments II: Elements are blown - with articulations such as sustains and flutter tonguing.
