Abbey Road One: Mysterious Reeds

The Iconic Sound of Cinema

Evoke a warm and mysterious air in your compositions with this alluring accompaniment to Abbey Road’s iconic Studio One. Whether soft and unsettling, challenging and dynamic, or somewhere in between, these reeds are great for adding a regal tone to orchestral compositions as well as creations of any genre seeking to incorporate magical and bewildering textures.

A departure from your standard, ‘pretty’ woodwind orchestration, these reeds — pairings of 2 Oboes & 2 Clarinets, and 2 Clarinets & 2 Bassoons — deliver an intriguing alternative for a darker, more mystical sound utilised by the crème de la crème of Abbey Road film composers. The enquiring tones of this selection effortlessly inspire intricate voicings to augment your arrangements with enduring, enigmatic emotion.

MYSTICAL DEPTH

MYSTICAL DEPTH



Mysterious Reeds seductively captures the nuances of this vital orchestral section with a lush delicacy befitting the most epic of Abbey Road scores. The library features 2 Oboes & 2 Clarinets, and 2 Clarinets & 2 Bassoons in octaves, influenced by reed techniques employed by composers such as John Williams, Howard Shore, and Jerry Goldsmith, Mysterious Reeds evokes a timeless, emotive sound inundated with dramatic effect and is well-suited for expressive compositions.

Intriguing and mystical to its core, this exquisite library is great for creating for textural elements, as well as regal tones; put the arrangement in Unison for a more piercing tone, or in Octaves for a wider and richer sound.
Performed in the unmistakable acoustics of Abbey Road’s Studio One, Mysterious Reeds further enriches the available offerings in the Abbey Road One orchestral range by providing a darker, esoteric tone to contrast with more conventional woodwind timbres.








THE ICONIC SOUND OF CINEMA

THE ICONIC SOUND OF CINEMA



Enter the room most composers can only dream of—Abbey Road’s Studio One. Considered one of the finest acoustical spaces in the world, Studio One’s history has an indelible connection with the scores recorded there, providing emotion, mood, and magic for many of the most renowned and successful films ever made. Such classics as Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Avengers: Endgame, all were recorded in Studio One. With its rich tonality and famed reverb, Studio One’s sound is widescreen and epic. Truly, it is the iconic sound of cinema.

Mysterious Reeds, and indeed all of the Abbey Road One Selections, puts the same first-call musicians that play on globally successful movies at your fingertips, all recorded by multi GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer Simon Rhodes (Avatar, Hugo, Harry Potter) and featuring the legendary Abbey Road microphones and outboard gear.
