For a long time now, Jonathan Sharp has been a key member of my demo writing team. He’s written some of the most eclectic and original demos, and releases equally eclectic and original music under the guise of Heartwood Institute.
Now, he’s branched out into synth programming himself as Heartwood Soundware.
As with his Heartwood Institute music, the sounds are a blend of the unusual and the ethereal. He draws on influences such as Hauntology, Music Concrete, the Radiophonic Workshop and Berlin School electronica, to provide a unique palette of synth patches. So far he’s released two soundsets for Diva and RePro5 – so u-he fans will be pleased. I even did a demo track for his RePro5 soundset.
If you like your synth patches on the esoteric side, you’ll really dig what he’s coming up with.
