Description

Big Bang Orchestra: Black Eye is the second in a series of tutti orchestra recordings for the Big Bang Orchestra. It expands the series with ready-orchestrated phrases and FX for modern effect-oriented composing. Black Eye enables you to quickly and effortlessly create large-scale orchestrations from scratch. Big Bang Orchestra: Black Eye provides you with all-new musical elements played by a 70-piece orchestra at Synchron Stage Vienna. These sounds include hits, rips, runs, clusters, tension sustains, rhythms, arpeggios, grace notes, echo effects and more.

Big Bang Orchestra: Black Eye provides a wide range of “classic” orchestra hits with all major, minor, open and diminished chords, octave grace notes, octave trills and a variety of short rips. Black Eye also offers longer major and minor runs in breathtaking tempos, where instruments of the lowest register were deliberately pushed to their limits.

Rhythmic Textures to Floating Spheres

VI Black Eye has hundreds of tension-charged clusters available in several dynamic levels. Dynamics include short and long, with and without marcato, and as short and long crescendos. Sustained textures are grouped into several categories. Some categories are either slightly changing in pitch (micro-tuning) or gravitating slowly toward the root note (or vice versa). Others don’t change in pitch, but in volume, with different sections of the orchestra alternating their volume resulting in a sustained tone that’s continually changing its colors.

Dramatic Accents

A special effect for dramatic accents is provided by the “Graced” patch. In this BBO: Black Eye patch, instruments of the high register rip toward a target note. This is reinforced by the rest of the orchestra with a powerful marcato-staccato. The “staccato-sordino sustains” provide a special spine-tingling sensation. While the fortississimo staccato of brass and low strings rings out, a very soft, high note played by the muted strings remains. This effect can illustrate the dynamic range of the orchestra in a split second. The Echoes and the Register Delay patches add even more variety to the category of Hits.
