Orakle is inspired by desolate landscapes and ancient aesthetics, by combining arcane instruments and techniques from medieval, nordic, and pan-Asian musical cultures. MNTRA’s curated suite of strings, percussion, voices, and more blend together to forge a vast unique cinematic soundscape – enhanced by the multidimensional Sound Sculpture audio engine MNDALA.
Performed by award-winning multi-instrumentalist composer Brian D’Oliveira, and drawing from decades of experience gained during MNTRA’s award-winning film and video-game productions, Orakle features Medieval & Eastern-inspired performance methods as well as unconventional extended techniques. Each note is a unique performance brought to life within Orakle, ready for you to sculpt.
Ranging from powerful Tibetan Horns and Giant Concert Bass Drum to the grating wails of the Turkish Kabak Kemane and Treble Viola Da Gambas, Orakle creates a distinctly dark atmosphere. MNTRA’s sampling approach comes from MNTRA’s desire to share something unconventionally interesting. Enhanced and transformed within the MNDALA Engine, allows you to explore countless sonic pathways of dynamic sound design with these rare instruments.
Orakle is also available as an expanded version, with additional instruments and presets as Orakle X.
