New York based musician and sound designer Micah Frank has relased Tectonic, a free Ableton Live pack featuring the sound of earthquakes.
The Ableton Live instrument includes over 30 high quality samples arranged as a menu of soundscapes.
The Tectonic compilation includes almost an hour of earthquake sonifications that can be listened to as a full length album, or played as an instrument in Ableton Live.
The compilation’s source material originated from US Geological Survey data, parsed by Cycling 74’s Max/MSP and synthesized in Symbolic Sound’s Kyma X.
Find more info about the project, including download and installation instructions, on the official Tectonic page.
