A POKE IN THE EAR
WITH A SHARP STICK


Free Music Downloads from the Rarefaction Vaults. - The Music 2011



A Poke in the Ear with a Sharp Stick is not a normal sound sample library. This series of sound sample libraries is designed to confound all expectations and push the envelope of "musicality." These collections are for professionals, musicans, gamming, broadcast, postproduction, advertising, feature film and television, multimedia, corporate, A/V or bedroom composers who crave something strange, new and different. Perfect for developing Electro-noise or the latest Coke commercial. These sounds hover between scintillating and demanding, to disturbing and bizarre. Rarefaction's sound sample libraries are designed to spur your imagination like no other sound library can. Our AIFF CD-ROM versions are set up for easy DAW and sampler use.
