ReForged: Cinematic Metallic Sound Design focuses on unique, hybrid sounds for modern film, TV, and game composer. Recorded and produced by sound designer Ali Lacey, ReForged explores the world of forgotten metals captured in a shed within the quiet countryside of South Wales... and as the name suggests, transforms them into something entirely new. Cutting-edge sound designer and producer Histibe contributed his talents, co-producing a huge array of warped, shifted, morphed and mutated material for the library, among other guest designers.
ReForged features an array of found metal objects performed as if they were percussive instruments: an old cooker, metal shovels, rakes, a tin bath, gas canisters, and much more. These unique objects were hammered, struck, tapped, and resonated using a wide variety of both conventional and not-so-conventional techniques. From this pool of beautifully-captured natural recordings, we crafted a new collection of designed material – cinematic impacts, sweeps, noises, rhythmic loops, glitches, sub strikes, tonal atmospheres, dark textures, and beyond.
