home theatre sounds music resources THWACK!


The list below is loosely based on categories, and while I make no guarantees about what may or may not be there at any given moment, they're still pretty nifty places to start. All links will open a new page; to come back here, just close the current one.

sound effects sample libraries performance research academics

These links are provided in hopes of nudging your creative mind a bit with experiments that may inspire awe, both in your audience and yourself. It's easy enough to work with sequencers and direct MIDI-controlled performance entry, but sometimes you want to divorce yourself from the predictable. My theatre work often requires me (by personal ethic) to throw out "the usual" methods and dive into something new.

Helps to remind me of the childlike fascination I have for discovering new sounds...
