An underground room, maybe 6x4 m big, with massive steel racks on its sides full of different stuff - various tools, devices, equipment,
components. Cardboard boxes, metal plates leftovers, wires of all kinds and lenghts, plastic buckets, bottles with chemicals, cans with colors,
binders, clobbers, bags, covers... A lot of larger and smaller objects - from a long steel ladder to small tiny srews. Concrete walls and tiled
floor provide nice natural reverb and I finally got myself down here with my ZOOM H2n recorder and recorded everything and anything that
got in my sight. My strategy was to catch this place truly and naturally, so I put the mics in surround mode to the center of the room.
Bangs, strokes, rustles, noises, slithers came from all directions for the next almost an hour. When I had circled the room few times, I took
microphone closer to the shelves and recorded another sets with less ambience and more detail - screwdrivers, spanners, boxes with screws,
shims, matrixes and also an orchestra of binder, defroster cans...
In contrary to my earlier "Toolshed", which offered similar kind of sounds, but of old, rusty, aged, obscure character recorded in a wooden
booth, "Workshop" provides "present" sounds - it feels more industrial with a coldness of larger space and concrete and metal. I am sure, that
few of you are able to get pretty interesting stuff out of it. In my opinion, lot of sounds from "Workshop" is so inspirational, that it is really
easy to build weird, interesting rhythmic patterns with even one of its 17 sample sets. I took my time to create dry and also wet versions of
these and added some FX patches as well. Enjoy playing the Workshop, friends !
