    Prior to downloading, I watched the Vimeo video clip about Waterphone. It was evident that the person ‘playing’ the instrument was not a trained percussionist. If you had actually used a trained percussionist to make these recordings — assuming you didn’t — the sounds would have been different and, in my opinion, much more… focussed. A percussionist would have discovered almost immediately, how / where and in what way to hit, stroke, rattle and otherwise excite this fascinating instrument. (It _is_ an instrument after all, right?)

      Hi. Thanks for your comment. you’re absolutely right. The person who was playing the instrument is not a percussionist. As a recordist and sounddesigner my target for this and all libraries is to grapple with the medium itself. I did a lot of research to find out how to play the instrument. And i found out, that even advanced players of the waterphone didn’t play much different than me. This instrument doesn’t allow much different styles of playing. My target was also to experiment with this medium and to sample single tones. I didn’t play sequences. What you get in the pack are single tones, hits and bowed sounds in many different styles, variations and dynamics. What you see in the Video are not all sounds for shure. What you see is only a really small overview. Also it was not a target to get the best Waterphone playing. I wanted to sample something that is unique and good for designing weired deep and eerie athmospheres.

      For exsample: As you also can see in the “Desolated Strings & Wood” Library, i’m also not able to play a Zither correctly 🙂 maybe that’s the cause, because it’s broken. But that is exactly what i want from my libraries. Unique and hard to find sounds, that not everyone will get everywhere !! This is what the Soundcatcher brand stands for.
