  • Environments Athens & Crete Play Track 75+ sounds included, 400 mins total $66

    Ya su, Kalós órises, and welcome to Athens & Crete!

    From the ancient bustling markets to the untouched natural beauty of the Mediterranean coast, this library epitomises the notion of two sonic worlds colliding. We set out with the goal of capturing this historical part of the world and quickly learned this could only be done by fully embracing this polarity. So here we are, two libraries in one and boy is it a cracker!!

    Athens

    This capital city, steeped in history, wrestles elegantly with the old and new. Market trader calls fill the archaic streets as they have for centuries before whilst across town the modern heart of Athens beats to the sound of cars and motor bikes.

    We captured street buskers, back alley murmurs, bustling city squares, markets, heavy traffic, skylines and even a religious sermon!


    Crete

    400km away from the chaos of Athens sits the serene island of Crete, a picture of unchanged Mediterranean life. Unlike Athens, nature dominates here and we got our ankles wet recording all she has to offer; big surf, coves and gurgling rock pools. Mountain goats, crows, roosters and an early dawn chorus. Insects of the Agia Erini Gorge – more Cicadas than you can shake a stick at!

    So whether it's Game of Thrones or the next Bourne film, this beast will help bring your locations to life!

  • City Life Athens Rooftop Play Track 9+ sounds included, 120+ mins total $29 $19

    Want the sounds of Athens? The Athens Rooftop sound effects library delivers 9 long ambiences recorded from different perspectives, and at different times of day – from calm mornings to busy days and nights.

    In order to capture Athens' soundscape in all its nuances, very low-noise Neumann Microphones and Sound Devices Recorders were used to record long takes (between 8 and 21 minutes each) totaling to over 2 hours of audio.

    The recording location was a two floor rooftop on a three storey building above a very small street with no nearby traffic that allowed recording the city with some distance from above: Traffic, restaurants, bars, construction work, birds – in some evening recordings we hear crickets in the distance, in some day recordings the AC of a neighbouring flat is running.

    Most of the recordings can also be used to represent a general city ambience, while some takes include specific regional sounds like Greek walla, churches and cicadas characteristic for the Greek capital.
