Description: POWERFUL KINEMATIC VOCAL
Haunting, exotic and relentlessly passionate, Voices of Empire lets you create the perfect vocal performance for your next epic movie, TV series or game soundtrack. Featuring Uyanga Bold’s raw, primal vocals, this is the perfect solo addition to the Hollywood Choirs’ large scale library. Her voice will give your music a distinctive quality in almost any genre, be it hybrid orchestral, industrial, EDM and a wide range of others, limited only by how adventurous you are.
EAST MEETS WEST
Uyanga Bold is a unique talent that combines the musical traditions of Bulgaria, Serbia, Mongolia and other countries. A trained opera singer with absolute pitch, fluent in Russian, Mongolian, French, English and German, her voice is a real demonstration of the meeting of East and West. Her voice is otherworldly yet authentic and world class in its accuracy. She features on the soundtrack to the upcoming Disney remake of Mulan and recently toured with Hans Zimmer for his live performance of the music from The Dark Knight. Forbes says “her voice goes back to ancient civilizations” and she was nominated for “Singer of the Year”. She has performed worldwide on television, radio and in live performances, reaching over 25 million views across all platforms.
Wide range of vocal instruments including melismas, slars, sustain vibrato, non-vibrato and up-downs. If you want flare and earthiness but don’t need a lot of related notes, sustain is your best bet.
In addition to providing true legato for every interval up to the octave, Uyanga’s performances are recorded in two completely different styles: traditional and Mongolian. If you’re looking for a smooth performance as close to life as possible, this collection is likely to be your favorite collection in this library.
These instruments combine multiple articulations into a single instrument that uses the modulation wheel (CC1) or velocity sensitivity to determine which of the various articulations will be played. This collection is the best choice for real-time flexibility while you play, thanks to the simplicity and speed with which you can make performance adjustments.
These 29 words contain non-tonal renditions of certain words displayed over a range of 2 octaves, perfect for when you want Uyangi’s voice character without any melodic qualities. Bro, Di, Dez, Jan, Door, Gor, Greer, HohuaHua, Ji, Calco, Con, La, Le, May, MohJay, Nar, Nosh, Rain, Sha, Som, Stra, StrabeyHe, Stro, Ve, Paddle, Vom, Vos, Vos (Breath), Yer.
Instruments containing a total of 254 phrases in Western and non-Western styles (approximately 21 phrases for each of the 12 root notes). These impromptu recordings have given Uyanga a chance to unleash, so while they don’t always stay in tune, they more than make up for it with passion and spontaneity.
Combinations of Legatos, Melismas, Phrases, Sustains and Words into separate instruments controlled via MIDI keys. When precision and variability are important and you are willing to make some surgical adjustments, this collection offers a lot of flexibility.
