Press Info:
The XSL album launch will be on Monday, 18th of May. The release consists of a 10-track album by various artists who joined the open collaboration. The album will be presented as a free digital release, with the option to pay for it if you want to support the project.

The XSL project compiled sounds from more than 50 artists around the world, thereby developing a sound library for the production of the album. Sounds were made available online for free and after three months the open collaboration closed with 37 entries, from which we made a selection for the compilation.

The XSL started with the idea of integrating social creativity in the compositional process. The aim is to develop a culture of interaction and exchange and to raise a creative community striving for innovation; thus facilitating the emergence of new ideas. The XSL will be presented at Sónar Festival by Davic Nod who will play a set with the sounds collected for the project.

In case you are interested, it is still possible to get for free the collection of +2 GB of sounds including recordings from sound installations, the new instrument Arpasauro inspired by harp and organ, underwater recordings with a custom made hydrophone, field-recordings of wild insects, frogs, rain, thunderstorms, sea waves, planes, machines, samples of ceramics, stones, household percussion, vinyl crackle, a clavichord, a violin, a japanese choir, a vocal of a poem, analog synthesizers, drones, pads, sci-fi soundscapes…
