This instrument began as one of those slightly strange ideas in the middle of the night. I was thinking about how pads, synths and these choral voices that we all use are generally preferred if they are born from natural, organic sounds; and as an oboist why is it that wind instruments are not used more for this purpose?
At 3am in a student halls of residence it is generally considered unacceptable to start recording music, so I formed this pad out of some leftover scraps of audio from a previous session.
The choir is made up of purely two sounds: the oboe, and the cor anglais which have been combined to double the octave.
The instrument is almost self evolving, and although there is only one sample stretched across the whole keyboard, it evolves from organ-like in the bass, to very choral in the mid register, to very fragile and dirty at the top.
