Interval isnt quite like anything else you've played. It is an instrument which „has real life and breath“ as composer Theodore Shapiro said. Inspired by contemporary compositions Interval pursues a new approach into building sounds. It is hard to explain, but in the broadest sense, it is an instrument for building inspiring pads, organic atmospheres as well as creative arpeggios. You can do things with it you cant do with anything else.
Interval features two main issues: the extraordinary selection of sound sources (samples) and an unqiue engine to create harmonies.
During the latest recordings of orchestral instruments Cinematique Instruments spent extra time for recording very light and fragile sound articulations. As the result CI is happy to unveil an extraordinary collection of gentle and shimmering long notes of violins, celli, flute and trombones which are breathtaking. To round off this palette of sounds they have added some fine selected sounds such as harmonic violin, ebow guitar, a sine tone and more.
Alone by playing these beautiful sounds in a traditional way like - without using the Interval engine - you will have a great experience of shimmering pads and organic sounds!
This playing will be refined by Intervals engine with what some composer told „It isnt quite like anything else Ive played“. It is an easy but astonishing concept. Interval just layers equal intervals (up to eight) on top of each other and the result is a distinct cluster with timbres ranging from bright and clear to complete cacophony. For example, if you are playing an C by a selected fourth interval, Interval will play C-F-Bb-Eb1-Ab1-Db2-B and so on, or a C with a bunch of superimposed fourth notes. And really true, what you now hear is an inspirational sound with unconventional harmonies!
In addition to that you get - as a bonus - the Intimate Piano which fits very well to the strings. Intimate Piano is a completely new recorded set of samples of our beloved Zeitter & Winkelmann upright piano. The Piano was recorded with two different sets of mics.
One version was recorded with a pair of condesnser mics in the floor area of the piano and the other was done by a field recorder lying on the ground of the it. Cinematique Instruments restricted theirselves to record just a very low and gentle velocity level of the piano. This kind of playing along with the unique recording setting results into its charming, warm and intmate sound. Finally they added some EQ options, a reverb and furtherly the option to mix some string or pot fx noise to the piano which let's it quickly sound very artificial and experimental. Intimate Piano is simple but very expressive!
