We wanted to combine classic drum machines ( 15, to be exact ) with the the organic ambience and warmth of studio recorded drums. So, we took a club PA to two different studios, turned it up really loud, and recorded the results: through high-end mics, vintage consoles, valve pre-amps, bass-amps and even acoustic drum shells.

The Ondioline was invented in 1941, and produced in France throughout 1950s/60s. It was conceived by inventor Georges Jenny as a low cost Ondes Martenot; sharing the same lateral vibrato keyboard, with a knee-lever to shape volume. It was entirely valve-based with its own built-in amplifier and inspired the Clavioline, Jennings Univox and Hammond Solovox. The sound can be surprisingly realistic when the vibrato and knee lever are used together - organic, sinuous and extremely expressive.

Pedal-powered reed organs (often referred to as pump organs) were once the most popular instruments in the USA. Manufactured by the Estey Organ Company from 1860 onwards, they were often housed in ornate and elaborate pieces of furniture.

Every aspect of Box Of Tricks has been shaped by Imogen Heap. An exclusive selection of her instruments, sampled in detail and with custom scripts, effects, and tools; all designed the way she wanted to use them. Box Of Tricks has already been beta-tested in Imogens live performances and studio projects: a process that helped generate ideas and refine the instruments. From an initial idea about a free Heap instrument, to the final result, 3 years later; Box Of Tricks is a truly extraordinary collaboration.

Gamelan is an ensemble of instruments originating from Indonesia. The majority of Gamelan instruments are percussive, and most of these are bronze. They include xylophone-like metallophones of different sizes and pitch, tuned gong chimes, very large pitched gongs, and an assortment of drums and percussion. There are many types of Gamelan ensembles, but the two dominant types are Javanese and Balinese. Balinese Gamelan has a characteristic 'shimmering' sound which is due to the detuning of paired instruments playing the same musical part.

We don’t know much about this particular instrument’s history - a friend of Soniccouture, Tom Heywood, who runs Normal Bias studios in Berlin, found it in one of the city’s many flea markets. It was sold to him by a vendor who specialises in DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik) era collectibles. It is a child’s toy piano, made of plastic.

The insides of a vintage Stage 73 electric piano are a fascinating place. The classic keyboard sound is just the begining - the large electromagnetic harp holds entirely new sonic worlds - if you're prepared to look for them. Taking our cue from Broken Wurli and our Xtended Piano instruments, we first sampled the keyboard in unprecedented detail, taking not only line-out samples but also close-miked hammers and a contact mic signal from each tine.

What happens when you take a perfectly good instrument - one thats been around for hundreds of years - and completely rethink it? Many musicians have dug their hands into the piano, John Cage prepared it with bolts between the strings, others have strummed it or hit it with their hands, but one of the most ethereal and unorthodox techniques is that of bowed piano.

Most people who are interested in Electronica of any kind know what a Roland TB303 is. It’s the funny little silver box that Roland released in the 80s to provide bass accompaniment to buskers and cabaret performers. Famously it wasn’t very good at that, and the unit languished in obscurity, until the Acid house scene of the late 80s started to use 303s to create burbling, bending basslines and leadlines.

It is said that the unique properties of the 303 sound are attributable to a few different factors - its unusual 18db Lowpass filter ( which was apparently meant to be 24db, but the componentry used was too cheap to achieve that slope), its implementation of portamento and sliding notes, its accent system and lastly, its quirky sequencer.

Inspired by the Blue Man group, we decided to build a PVC pipe thwacker thing… a " Tube Drum " .. technically known as a "plosive aerophone" . Starting with a very long 20 foot (6 metre) pipe (that's a 57 Hz fundamental, for those without a calculator)… we thwacked, and we sampled and we sawed… we thwacked again, and we sawed again – we went back to the hardware store a few times – until one last little piece (6 inches / 16 cm) gave us the high C6. This gave us the five octave completely multi-sampled 63 note Tube Drum.
