Dark Sounds Suite
'Each note is a unique performance brought to life within Orakle, ready for you to sculpt'
Orakle is inspired by desolate landscapes and ancient aesthetics, by combining arcane instruments and techniques from medieval, nordic, and pan-Asian musical cultures. Our curated suite of strings, percussion, voices, and more blend together to forge a vast unique cinematic soundscape - enhanced by our multidimensional Sound Sculpture audio engine MNDALA.
Performed by award-winning multi-instrumentalist composer Brian D'Oliveira, and drawing from decades of experience gained during our award-winning film and video-game productions, Orakle features Medieval & Eastern-inspired performance methods as well as unconventional extended techniques. Each note is a unique performance brought to life within Orakle, ready for you to sculpt.
Ranging from our powerful Tibetan Horns and Giant Concert Bass Drum to the grating wails of the Turkish Kabak Kemane and Treble Viola Da Gambas, Orakle creates a distinctly dark atmosphere. Our sampling approach comes from our desire to share something unconventionally interesting. Enhanced and transformed within our MNDALA Engine, allows you to explore countless sonic pathways of dynamic sound design with these rare instruments.

Continuous play and pushing creative boundaries is our foundational mindset when creating our instruments. Rather than trying to recreate true-to-life instruments, we choose to experiment and not follow the usual path.
Inspired by nature and ancient knowledge, we embrace expressive (im)perfections, perform and capture using experimental methods to create instruments and sounds that are beyond the imagined.
From using bespoke extreme-quality recording using methods such as ultrasonics, to experimenting with unique workflows and sound sources that are constantly in a state of re-invention, each Sound Sculpture Instrument is a playable form of our exploratory journeys.
While sampling, the subtleties and imperfections of live human performance are embraced and encouraged. Depending on the final intent, we will creatively post-process as little or as much as needed (sometimes beyond recognition), but always making sure that the soul and character of the performances are fully transmuted once it's been implemented as one of our expressive playable instruments.
