The recordings for this soundpack took place at three different locations. One part of the soundpack features good old arc welding. We had a couple of extensive free field welding sessions where we performed on different kinds of metal and used mixed types of welding rods. Really cool, rich and almost rhythmical sound effects derive from this session.
The main part of this soundpack is the result of an extra long and challenging session we planned together with Stefan Reißig. Through him we were able to record climbing arcs from a jacob´s ladder, manually pulled arcs with a stick, electrical discharges around a glass plate, capacitor discharges and electrified objects like wood branches, apples and bones. The special thing about this Jacob´s Ladder is that it can be modulated in speed. This produced very extreme and expressive sounds. Stefan studied electrical engineering and collects all this crazy high voltage equipment. Big credit goes to him and be sure to check out his youtube channel Teslalabor, where he posts all his crazy experiments!
Our third session took place at the university of applied science in Cologne. Here at the institute for energy management we were able to pick up an other awesome sounding jacob´s ladder, a huge marx generator and big sounds of electrical discharges.
