Music From Sand is an experimental musical project where all the sounds have been created out of organic sources.

In "Music From Sand" the entire track is created only out of tuned sand tones. No additional sounds or waveforms. I emphasized the inner notes of the sand grains and mapped them on a sampler as a series of instruments. The grooves are all played live with various techniques, including taping two piezo films to my fingers.

In "Passage to Atlantis" I created additional sounds out of tuned water noises and immersive sound ambiences based on dolphin and whale sounds. The grooves are played with sand noises and water drops. Also in this case I didn't use additional sounds or waveforms.

I created a video that shows how I sampled and played the sand:
