Vagabond Crystal – Magical Sound of Caves, Crystals, and Inner-Solitude

After some months, another Atom Hub release is here! This time, bell-like kind od sounds attracted my attention. Then, somehow, the idea of caves, underground locales and fictional fauna and flora started emerging in my mind – and that became the course Atom Hub took. What you see is the result. 

Sparkling and sustained sound of metal and glass. Atmosphere and soundscapes of a fictional underground, fauna, and locales. Magical sounds of caves, crystals, and inner solitude.

Vagabond Crystal by Atom Hub offers the beautiful sound of carefully sampled real items and instruments, as well as unusual and original sound design.

The Vagabond Crystal sample library was created by Mato Huba (Atom Hub) to utilize the sounds of bells, glass, and metal objects. Various items were used and sampled: A singing bowl, Tibetan bells, a little gong, wine glasses, a dish cover, water, rocks, a synthesizer, plus hardware and software effectors. The idea was to pay homage to crystal, shiny sounds and soundscapes and… caves. Yes, these sounds, their long sustains, and sparkle instantly bring up images of caves, and of descent into their eerie depths, in Mato Huba’s mind.

Mato wanders through their stony halls, corridors, and galleries, and admire the silent beauty of Mother Nature’s work of art. Stalagmites and stalactites, like statues, guard the returning echoes of water drops dripping from wet, cold walls and ceilings. An underground river is taking me far away from the surface. Time is standing still in the darkness, eyes don’t see. Imagination comes to life. Mato becomes a crystal who wanders through the dark, like a vagabond without a home.
