BFD Kabuki & Noh Percussion is a fascinating collection of authentically played Japanese percussion instruments and noisemakers produced by Sonica for BFD3 and BFD2.
Combining the emotions, grandeur and mystery of Kabuki and Noh performances with the reverberations of tapped hand drums, Kabuki & Noh Percussion features 56 authentic Japanese percussion instruments including traditional hand drums, pitched drums, bells, gongs and music boxes alongside Noh flute and authentic vocal motifs. Also included are the ashibyoshi foot beats and tsukeuchi sound-effect clappers crucial to Kabuki performance. The instruments are played by master traditional Japanese percussionist Takinojo Mochizuki with alternating left/right hits and up to 99 velocity layers.
Well-preserved vintage mics, Neve preamps and an anechoic room similar to the bamboo-curtained orchestra room in a Kabuki theater were used for the recordings. Reverb can be added as needed – Kabuki & Noh Percussion preserves the true character of the instruments’ sound. Also included are over 150 Grooves which offer instant access to real nagauta and Noh performance rhythm patterns.
