The acclaimed release of Eric Whitacre Choir from Spitfire Audio five years ago captured the breathtaking range of the most emotive musical instrument – the human voice. Advance to today, and Spitfire Audio releases Eric Whitacre Contrast – a sample library that surpasses the sonic boundaries of traditional choral performance, pushing the human voice to powerful new extremes.

Curated by GRAMMY® Award-winning composer and conductor Eric Whitacre, Eric Whitacre Contrast features all-new performances from 19 world-class singers, captured in AIR Studios, offering 245 contemporary techniques made with remarkable clarity and precision.

At the heart of the library are 245 experimental techniques performed by 19 members of the Eric Whitacre Singers (Soprano 5, Alto 5, Tenor 4, Bass 5) recorded with a comprehensive range of mic positions in the stunning acoustics of AIR Studios, home of countless blockbuster scores. Each technique, curated with the awe-inspiring expertise of Eric Whitacre, is presented with two contrasting tones — ‘Light’ and ‘Dark’ — Light created with an open vowel shape, and Dark with a closed vowel shape. This seemingly subtle change creates a completely different tone and timbre. The techniques themselves — aptly named fragments, shards, divergences, murmuring, prisms — have been carefully curated to subtly (and sometimes dramatically) dance and move beneath your fingertips, moving at different intervals and through varying shifts in dynamic, tone, and pitch.

Eric Whitacre Contrast is a living, breathing machine of sonic metamorphosis with limitless creative sound design possibilities, for any genre of music, available as a standalone library or as an addition to Eric Whitacre Choir and other Spitfire Audio sample libraries.
