AURAS is an exploration of the realm of musical sound that has no form or is indefinable in nature. These sound sculptures can be shaped and controlled by MIDI keyboards and controllers, including MPE (Midi Polyphonic Expression) technology such as ROLI Seaboard or Haken Continuum, which have the ability to shape the sound to a note as you play.
Along with exploring the world of AURAS patch sounds, you can create and customize new soundscapes using the COLORS environment. Easily assign sound shaping parameters to any MIDI sliders, knobs, or controllers to quickly and easily create completely unique textures.
The sound world of AURAS focuses primarily on abstract and impressionistic textures and rhythms. It is influenced by the styles of composers and performers that blur the lines between sound design, orchestration and music. John Luther Adams, Ben Frost, Ingram Marshall, Tim Hecker, Ian William Craig, Machinedrum, and William Basinski were anchor points for a library that explores the manipulation of sound as if it were an energy field or an aura of sound texture that is constantly shifting in shape and color.
