Rasa translates to essence or taste. For Mntra, this refers to the aesthetic flavours crafted into our sample maps, ready to be experienced by you, our sahrdaya, literally one who has heart and can connect to the work with emotion.In this spirit, we created Rasa as an introductory gateway into the vast creative possibilities that our expressive Sound Sculpture Instruments have within them.
For Rasa, we chose one distinct instrument sample map from each of our four existing Sound Sculpture Instruments. We selected Orakle's large Tibetan horn, sampled using the custom-built giant reverb resonator that lends this horn its colossal and brutalist sound. From Arca, we chose the Mongolian Morin khuur, performed in such a way that its unique harmonics are accentuated. Then, we went to Atma for its rare Pitched Volcanic Rocks, and finally, we included UDW's Viper Death Whistle.
