Library of unique instruments invented by Ferdinand Foersch for the Best Service sampler – Engine 188.8.131.52
Klanghaus is a virtual instrument based on the Best Service Engine 2 sample player, which includes sounds taken from the custom-made collection of strange instruments by Ferdinand Försch.
As a musician, composer and fine artist, producer Ferdinand Forsch has been inventing and designing new musical instruments, sound sculptures and installations since 1982. He has developed over a hundred musical instruments (metal drums, strings and their combinations, sound images, drum and sound walls, and sound machines), erecting them from a wide variety of materials. They have been featured in concerts, performances and exhibitions around the world (The Kitchen, New York, Shanghai Arts Festival, West Africa, numerous European festivals, etc.).
All sounds in the Klanghaus library come from an original and unique source.
In 1997, Forsch founded the Klanghaus in Hamburg, Germany, as an experimental forum for concerts, exhibitions and interdisciplinary performances.
After 30 years of creating musical instruments, he decided to open doors even further and convey his sonic work in the form of virtual instruments, which led to the creation of the Klanghaus library.
