Toys After Dark is a glimpse into what's going in the toy factory after midnight. It is a playful and experimental soundset based on circuit-bent toys and musical instruments, such as math toys, old Casio keyboards and talking toys such as the Furby.

"toys after dark is an imagination of what's happening inside a toy factory at night."

While the purpose of circuit-bending is to bring out new sounds and textures from simple electronics - the nature of circuit-bended gear are generally chaotic, crazy, wacky, weird, noisy and often completely crazy. Trying to make sense of circuit-bended sounds is an exercise in patience. Omnisphere 2 comes loaded with an extensive library of circuit-bent sounds and we spent a lot of time listening though all the recordings for the most interesting parts. Armed with a collection of cool sounds, we started putting together our own sounds: rhythmic loops, tonal single sounds, textures and even drum loops.

All of the tonal singles have been tuned to make sense in a musical context - as much as a circuit-bent sound can be tuned - as are many of the loops and sequences. But to keep the chaotic vibe of circuit-bending some of the rhythmical material were not tuned.

Together with the single sounds we also created 50 multi sounds where created even more complex sounds and advanced rhythmic loops.
