I work on motion graphics, and have a project coming up with a lot of light elements and moving/flowing light streaks.
I've used wooshes before, layered with reverse bells and cymbals. Sometimes tried glass elements but rarely made that work, maybe doing it wrong or haven't found the right sample.
I've been using the same techniques and wanted to shake it up a bit and experiment from a different angle. Either different sources to start from, or effects to process through.
The feel of the upcoming project is positive, beautiful, and human achievement- nothing dark/haunting.
I'm thinking I might look into some synth sounds, something bright and crystal-like, but waiting on final music to see what I can match.
