I have been curious about instruments that I may not be aware of, I was surprised when I found out about instruments like the Waterphone (used a lot in horror movies), the Fear Machine, Theremin, etc.
I think the most unusual instruments I’ve herd in recent compositions are real ones
The instruments that were built to make special patches in Omnisphere. Playing a light bulb for example
8Dio does that on a semi-regular basis as well! To add to the mystery, some of these have never been shown publicly, so we don’t even know what they look like!
A few amazing instruments that I’ve found on YouTube etc
My friend taught himself to play hurst girdy for game OST - exampleof one here
Yaybahar - amazing sounding new-ish instrument
And of course the shenanigans
Made me laugh
Wow, the libraries they’ve made sounds really interesting , perfect for makjing unique soundtracks
wow, thanks for sharing these amazing videos, loved each one, specially the Yaybahar sounds, sounds like the effects they use in movies when a big ice cap breaks
interesting, i need to make an orchestral piece with lightbulbs
