From dissonant drones to massive swells, “Sentient Frequencies” lets you experience the richness of performed instruments with sound fx in mind. 

Roaring didgeridooswhaling timpani’s – TONSTURM performed in stunning spaces using extended techniques on a huge variety of selected instruments: Space Cello, Grand Piano, Concert Harp, Huge Pipe Organ, Concert Timpani’s and Base-drums, Overtone Flute and a Double Bass. 

Like with its predecessor “Esoteric Metal”, the spaces TONSTURM captures our recordings in are always crucial to us, and therefore the company took a lot of effort to come up with 4 different and spectacular sounding spaces to offer you maximum sonic diversity and richness in sound.

Three Different Mic Setups and Positions

  • In 7.0Surround7 x Sennheiser MKH 8020. This setup was positioned quite distant to the sound source and will be a joy to use in a wide cinema context.
  • LCR with 3(!) Sanken CO-100k, to get you the most high-frequency action. They were positioned at a medium distance to the sound source.
    Schoeps MS (with XT body to extend the frequency range) positioned close to the sound source. The Harp was recorded with a Trance Audio Inducer Piezo mic.

TONSTURM also included carefully crafted mix-downs for your convenience: 5.0 surround Mix-downs and Stereo Mix-downs of everything.


TONSTURM is founded by Tilman Hahn and Emil Klotzsch. Both work as Sound Designers and Sound Editors in Cologne, Germany and share a passion for recording sounds. They created this platform not just to provide unique sound effects, but also to live out their passion.
