RHYTHMIC STRINGS

Featuring deliberately-composed rhythmic elements, played together in intimate chamber string ensembles, Rhythmic Textures embodies these ensemble articulations—from cellos layering sul ponticello tremolos over swells to violin staccatos played over col legno tapping.

Awards, Reviews, and Testimonials

"Rhythmic Textures takes great sounding organic string recordings and pushes them in new directions with creative arranging and processing. The result is a compelling collection of fascinating string performances, easily accessed and shaped for any project."

Ramin Djawadi

Game of Thrones, Iron Man, Westworld

"Rhythmic Textures definitely has Heavyocity & Jason Graves' signature all over it, in the best way. The basic bones of it, the actual samples recorded, are ripe with compelling motion, but then the ability to utterly mangle them from there forward is truly powerful. It was a joy to experiment and instantly profoundly useful."

Austin Wintory

Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Captain Abu Raed, Journey

"Rhythmic Textures is not a replacement for your string library, instead it is one of those rare sample libraries that inspire ideas from the composer immediately upon playing them. The samples are rich and organic and very realistic sounding. When you play them you are immediately enticed to compose using these moody evocative smaller string ensembles, rich in mood and attitude and ideal for the composer who scores to picture. Best of all, they suggest ideas without dictating them. Highly recommended."

Garry Schyman

BioShock, Torn, Dante's Inferno

Partnering with Heavyocity to produce Rhythmic Textures made me feel like a kid in a musical candy store. I believe composers will find these instruments both inspirational and extremely versatile.
