Saxophones + harmoniums = SAXOMAPHONIUM
Sound Dust Saxomaphonium is a hybrid Kontakt instrument hewn from layers of baritone and alto sax plus two ancient wind-powered reed organs. It takes un-cool elements, records them nicely and then re-imagines them into something entirely new.


With a deep but manageable Kontakt engine, the Saxomaphonium creates a new reed/metal/wood-based palette that can cover a surprisingly wide range of stunning possibilities.

The Components
Looped baritone and alto long notes
Tape treated, looped baritone and alto long notes
Honking goose sax staccato
BPM synced looping harmonium hand-pumped notes
Deep wheezy foot pumped room organ
