Global Sound Movement Brings Rare Music to the Masses

Global Sound Movement Brings Rare Music to the Masses

PRESTON, England, May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The Global Sound Movement has launched a revolutionary sustainable fundraising
platform, enabling western music producers to make use of extremely rare and exotic
instruments and sounds.

Following a recent visit to Uganda with London-based charity Sound Foundation, the
group, which is made up of academics and students from the University of Central
Lancashire (UCLan), has created a sonically rich and exclusive online sample library for
use in Logic's EXS24 Sampler and Native Instruments Kontakt.

Recorded in hi-resolution, the library is made up of sounds from rare hand-built
instruments and the local environment, providing unique audio collections that capture the
authentic sounds and ambiance of Uganda.

These interesting and unusual sounds are royalty free and can be used commercially by
the music industry. The library consists of over 240 audio loops and over 2.5GB worth of
environmental recordings, meaning they can easily be incorporated into different types of
music by music producers and film makers.

The money generated by sample library downloads is given back to the communities from
which the sounds were recorded, helping to fund the economic growth of these areas,
creating a sustainable and mutually beneficial fundraising cycle.

Phil Holmes, senior lecturer in music production at UCLan said: "The Global Sound
Movement provides the international music industry with a variety of unconventional sounds
that have been recorded in collaboration with musicians from areas of social and economic

"The aim is to connect communities through music, and it's a win-win situation - the
communities receive income from the sales of the libraries and the music industry gets
high-quality, unique sounds that can be used in new material."

The sample library is an ongoing project for the Global Sound Movement, and one that
the group will continue to expand following trips to Cyprus and China next year.

Paresh Parmar, senior lecturer in brand management at UCLan said: "The sample library
we've created has massive potential for growth. There are so many unusual instruments
across the globe that produce fantastic sounds, but some are so rare that they are only
heard by a handful of people.

"The Global Sound Movement was created to share these sounds with the rest of the
world and use them as a way to generate income for communities at the same time. The
library will expand as we discover more unique instruments and we look forward to hearing
some of these new sounds being fused with western music."
