MECHANISM is a library created by Kirsten Evans, for Swedish composer Jon Ekstrand. Together we designed the GUI and decided on which effects would be great to use to manipulate the sounds of the instrument!

This sound design library is filled with recordings of mechanical sounds taken from the upright, Schimmel piano in Jon’s studio, Stockholm, Sweden. The piano has recently been adapted and converted into a felt piano. In this library we can hear sounds from the pedals, the keys, and body of the piano alongside the newly inserted lever of the felt mechanism.

Descriptions for each of the controls can be found in the help section of the Kontakt window.
