Oceania is Jasper Blunk’s first commercial release from his company Performance Samples. Oceania is a 48-person choir (24 women / 24 men) with a focus on syllable cohesion, playability, and energetic, dynamics. It is a choral library that emphasize expression, energy, and are “fun to play” over everything. And in addition it just sounds great.
I personally found this new choir library extremely playable, it shines as I can just play short and long notes without the need to change articulations. On top of this very playable library the choice to play with or without Flatten Dynamics is unique as I know it in the current market.
