Free Sci-Fi SFX sound collection by INTROSPECTRAL.

Samples of Tenalach is the third and final installment in a trilogy of free sci-fi SFX libraries crafted by Johan Ekelove aka Introspectral. Sharing a similar theme with the previously released InterSpace and The Weird Side Samples sound libraries, Samples of Tenalach is yet another impressive collection of swooshes, noises and otherworldly sonic textures from Introspectral’s interstellar sound design station.

Tenalach is an Old Irish word which is (according to some online sources) the equivalent of the English word hearth (a stone-lined fireplace). It has a deeper meaning, though. As Introspectral describes it, “it (Tenalach) points to a relationship one has with the land/air/water, a deep connection that allows one to literally hear the Earth sing”.

In March this year, Introspectral released a track called Tenalach on his Bandcamp page (it can be downloaded on a pay what you want basis) and Samples of Tenalach is a collection of one-shot sounds and textures which were used in this track. The library is a state-of-the-art toolbox of futuristic sounds and noises which can be used as transition SFX in electronic music, as well as background sound effects in video games, movies, trailers, etc. Here’s how Introspectral describes the library:

“This pack is the third in a trilogy of sorts, that started with “The Weird Side Samples”, followed by “InterSpace” and now ends with “Samples of Tenalach”. Tenalach is a sonic adventure I composed during an intensive week in the fall of 2014 and that I have now collected some of my favorite sounds from. It moves in the realms of the strangely mechanical and abstract, but at the same time there is an organic quality that holds a sort of beauty and sense of contemplation and rest.”

Introspectral is also the author of the fantastic InterSpace and The Weird Sound Samples sample packs. Apart from his Bandcamp page, you can follow his work on his Facebook profile. If you’re interested in finding out how Johan creates these mesmerizing sound effects in his Starsound Studio, you should definitely take a look at our Artist Spotlight interview with him. Johan also publishes some really cool audio editing and sound design tutorials on his YouTube channel.

    Fantastic sounds, superbly produced! I love everything I’ve heard so far (and that doesn’t happen very often when I download free samples). You’re amazing (but you probably knew that already, right?) for making these free4all. Keep up the great work ;-)
