A custom Kontakt instrument designed for film composer Andrew Lockington to help harvest sounds for the score for San Andreas.

The SAESI Kontakt instrument was built from content generated by real-time seismic activity along the San Andreas fault in California. From May 1st until May 27th, 2014 seismic event data was recorded from the US Geological Survey and relayed to 6 sound synthesis engines. A collection of the generated content was then extracted and reprogrammed as a Kontakt instrument for use with a standard keyboard controller.
