The long awaited first loop and sound packs by Philo Tsoungui.
While Philo improvised on her drums, Johann reacted to her drumming, performing effects on various outboard gear like Clouds Hill's Floppy Disc Delay, different tape machines, and pedals, feeding it back to Philo. The result is a uniquely musical performance and soundscape cut into pieces and edited for you to use on your projects. Files labeled DRY are the pure drum sounds, WET are the corresponding effects sounds and files labeled MIXED are both sounds mixed together like Philo wanted them to sound. Of course, these files are meant to be messed around with to suit you personal liking.
