"Sigil" Reel 2: Percussion

Created by Nathan Moody, formatted for use in the Make Noise soundhack Morphagene.

This is one of two Morphagene Reels made from one-of-a-kind handmade electro-acoustic instruments and found objects created by sound designer and musician Nathan Moody, an outgrowth of his 2018 album, "The Right Side of Mystery."

This reel is focused on percussive, inharmonic content from found objects and one-of-a-kind handmade instruments including metal table tops, perforated steel gongs, stretched springs, steel tubes, a drum made from packing tape, shakers made of tin cat food lids, and much more. They were struck with rubber mallets, carbon fiber rods, drumsticks, and woolen tympani mallets. They were recorded with a variety of microphones (Sennheiser MKH50, DPA 4061, Audio-Technica AT4050, Shure SM57 and Beta 52a), through AwTAC Channel Amplifier and Neve 511 preamps. The hits are gritty, raw, and harmonically complex often with long decays, holding up well to Varispeed manipulation, decay-tail looping, and filtering.
