I was watching a documentary on PBS this week, This Emotional Life, and at a few intervals during the show I heard the exact same sequence of sounds from the intro of Hyperventilate, the part before the first piano bit.  Did those come from a sound effects bank of some kind?   I swear for a minute there I really thought they were playing Frost*.


I think Jem said before that they were from a sample library but I can't be sure without a deep search.
Jem's still sorting out move-related issues so prolly won't reply anytime soon.

I've always thought that the warbling intro to Hyperventilate sounds Native American in style; as a former resident of Arizona, I have a few albums of such music.

That said, it didn't immediately strike me that it might be a sample from a library: I could see Jem composing it after a few puffs on the peace pipe down the bottom of his garden  :D


Pedders is right - Jem has stated on here somewhere that the intro bits were from a stock sample library - not sure if that means they'd be credited in the liner notes, if you were trying to find more info ??

...and quite a deep search it deep it had to go back to the old forum!

The original thread is here if anyone is interested.  :)

Wow -was that really over a year and a half ago? Time flies, to quote Mr Wilson...
