This past weekend INA-GRM held their INASOUND FESTIVAL where thousands of people came to watch amazing ‘Electro’ audio-visual concerts. To celebrate this hugely successful event all GRM products are on Promo at 50% off.
INASOUND FESTIVAL is a progressive electronic music and arts festival that takes place in the impressive Palais Brongniart, the old 19th century stock exchange in central Paris, France. GRM Tools were shown to the public on two different stands during their entire event.
Organised by the National Audiovisual Institute, the festival is an important cultural event for the city, with a heady mix of electronic performances, visual stimuli, and ‘docu-concerts’. Engaging panels and masterclasses were held by artists such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Matt Black of ‘ColdCut’, JB Dunckel (AIR) and many others.
There’s something about movies. Although we know how a plot will unfold, we’re still there – hooked and at the edge of our seats, waiting to be able to exhale that sigh of relief. Inevitably, music plays a pivotal role in this narrative. Arguably, there is nothing like it to emphasize a scene, an emotion or turn of events. Combined with pictures in motion, it’s almost impossible to not get submerged. That’s the combined power of two opposite forms of art working together in perfect symbiosis.

You need that outstanding tone you are hearing on your favorite album. So you bought an awesome instrument and a fantastic amp. Maybe you have also bought some beautiful stomp boxes, expensive rack units and phenomenal microphones. You use many hi-end plug-ins. But what? Your dream-tone is not there when recorded and mixed with the rest of the band? You are endlessly tweaking and tweaking your sound, you tried everything. No success.
Acoustic instruments can take a lot of processing even the natural tone is needed. It’s because of the context. Acoustic instruments can fight against busy arrangement with several layers of instruments clashing into each other. Or the recordings are sounding too sterile, thin or harsh. So you need the tone that can cut through. The tone has to be harmonically rich and fat sounding, but it also needs to have a lot of clarity and tightness at the same time. But it’s not all! Even if the instrument is heavily processed, it also has to be very natural sounding at some point so everyone knows what instrument is played.
This celesta is a very old Mustel made in Paris and properly maintained and restored by skilled technicians in Milano. Chocolate Audio carefully made sure the tuning was the best possible and spent quite a bit of time experimenting with mic choice and positioning.They ended up using a pair of AKG C414EB from the 70s for their silky and smooth sound as Spot mics and another trio of AKG 451E with CK22 omni capsules for the Decca perspective.
4 layered channels: Spot mics with AKG C414EB, Decca mics with AKG C451E-CK22 and 2 additional sound designed options, Hyped and Diffuse
