A clandestine cold-war style meet between composers Christian Henson & Pendle Poucher beneath the Hungerford Bridge resulted in one of the most exciting partnerships Spitfire has forged in its history. Christian's sampling hero Pendle Poucher and his seminal range of products from his company "Sound Dust" will now be added as a concession to the Spitfire Audio Shop. Like Spitfire, Sound Dust is created by a composer for composers, producers and music makers. It delights in the esoteric, the rusty, dusty and a little bit broken.
Spitfire and Sound Dust are delighted to announce a purpose-built bundle that includes all of our favourite Sound Dust products at an unbelievable price. But that's not all - we are delighted to announce that the Dustbundle includes one new and - for a limited time - totally exclusive yet-to-be-released beauty! To celebrate this new union, we are also delighted to announce a launch promo. If you haven't got any Sound Dust products, you'd be doing yourself a disservice not to grab this outstanding bundle at such an amazing price.
Sound Dust is the brainchild of Pendle Poucher, a Brighton UK based composer, sound designer and lover of funny noises.
Pendle has written, produced and performed soundtracks for every major UK TV station and many more all over the world. He worked for 10 years as sound designer and composer for award-winning theatre company DreamThinkSpeak, devising amongst others a 32-channel soundtrack for their radical reworking of Hamlet, "The Rest is Silence", in 2012.
In 2014 he is collaborating on two major works with the Jarman prize-winning artist Lindsay Seers, with multi-channel soundtracks for film installations to be shown in the Hayward Gallery, London and the Sharjah Art Foundation, UAE.
Pendle has also written chart-topping dance music, made a Christmas record with Evelyn Glennie and some household junk, composed music for two award-winning online games for the BBC, and created permanent sound installations for the National Trust at spooky Avebury Manor.
In the good old days, Pendle played guitar in Rough Trade signed art-pop combo Butterfly Child, but these days releases his own music as alter-ego Idmonster, with his latest album " Be more like water" released at the end of 2013 attracting airplay on BBC Radio 3 and 6.
Spitfire is proud to present Sound Dust's exclusive "Dustbundle". A selection of five of their bestselling and most desired instruments and one totally new and for a limited time, totally exclusive, yet-to-be-released beauty! All deep sampled with Pendle's eye on painstaking detail, innovation and desire to inject every essence of his personality into anything he records.
All six instruments are packaged together in a simple and single download via Spitfire's excellent dedicated and secure DL app. Bought separately, these instruments would cost £145, so this really is an amazing way to venture into the world of Sound Dust. Please remember you need a full version of Kontakt to run these...
