Flutter Dust Module is a new Kontakt sample instrument that uses long and complex multisampled acoustic ‘wavetables’ that scan in real time to create beautiful organic, evolving and un-expected new sounds. Like the Mellotron, Flutter Dust Module is based on recordings of acoustic instruments– but the extra functionality of the Kontakt engine takes the Flutter Dust Module to places of which the tape-based Mellotron could only ever dream. Creating woozy, ghostly versions of real world timbres, users can just move the playhead position or loop points to construct new sounds – punch-drunk orchestral pads, delicate flute-otrons, majestic organ-celeste, complex poly rhythmic Phillip Glass scapes…and more, all at the click of a button (well, a few buttons).
If you are beguiled by the music of genre defying artists like Tim Hecker, Ben Frost, Cristobal Tapia de Veer, Radiohead, Bjork and James Blake, then the Flutter Dust Module could be your new best friend – enabling you to make music which inhabits a sonic ‘other’ space by sounding both acoustic and electronic.
To demostrates some of the lovely possibilities, the demo track ‘Fading of the Light’ is a version of an orchestral cue from hit BBC drama The A Word (kindly lent by Sound Dust user and Bafta winning composer Rob Lane) re-imagined using only Flutter Dust Module.
Dreamy, crepuscular, luminous, authentic, ambigious, hazy, enchanted, disquieting – the Flutter Dust Module is all of this, and more.
