Creative Sounds From A Washing Machine

Soundiron releases Laundronium 2.0: Experimental SFX & Percussion      17/07/19

Soundiron has announced the release of Laundronium 2.0, which they say features unorthodox cinematic soundscapes, percussive rhythms, and ambient textures, all creatively sourced from a washing machine. Built with composers and sound designers in mind, they believe that it is perfect for when you need that 'outside the box' timbre for horror soundtracks, gritty industrial SFX and many other styles.

Here's the story direct from Soundiron...

The idea of the washing machine as a piece of musical equipment, while not unheard of, has been fairly limited in its scope. Generally you'll see the white cube playing a rudimentary spin cycle beat behind a mediocre guitarist who is only vaguely aware of the naturally occurring music which is constantly present in our modern human environment. The washing machine will play this beat dutifully, knowing that it isn't respected for musical talent like its ancestor the washboard. We spend so much less time with the modern washing machine, than the folks of previous generations did with the washboard, that we've become coldly detached from it. The washing machine happily does all the work, never complaining, and still we complain about laundry day. If we just took a little time to talk to our washing machines we may find out that they are treasure troves of musical potential.

The broad variety of percussion instruments we've given you represent a fair cross-section of the breadth of its acoustic capabilities, with everything from soft, gong-like, harsh, warbly, trashy, tight, muted, dreamy, bassy, to warm and sweet tones.
