Black Octopus Sound alongside Basement Freaks is proud to present Argonautica - Kemençe of the Black Sea. The most unique production from Basement Freaks so far.
This pack features the sound of Basement Freaks' ancestors through the traditional pear-shaped Kemençe - a 3-string bowed musical instrument from the Black Sea region. Basement Freaks fuses this traditional instrument with contemporary sound sources to achieve his dream of making a one-of-a-kind sample pack reflective of his rich musical heritage.
A pre-eminent musical folk instrument of the Greeks of Pontus (now Türkiye), the kemençe has a one-octave range and is usually tuned to perfect fourths - this is its strength as it can be played both melodically and polyphonically.
The kemençe gives this pack a traditional backbone alongside other instruments such as the darbuka, metal guiro, frame drums, drums, and multiple other percussion instruments. Altogether giving you a distinct range of sounds to make your productions stand out!
Inside, there are loops, one-shots, licks, and fills. These sounds are awesome for sprinkling throughout multiple genres. You can really feel Basement Freaks' passion oozing throughout this pack, so why not add Argonautica - Kemençe of the Black Sea to your sampling archives today?
