I'm tempted to say contrabassoon, as the instrument playing the seriously low D starting in the 2nd bar. For the rest of that phrase, I'd be hard-pressed to distinguish whether it was bassoon or contra- The later section starting 0.46, I'd definitely go for contra- with what may be tuba above it. I found this quote from Morricone, reported by the BBC ...

This is violin/fiddle played in the famous "gypsy" (Romani) style. You might try looking up "gypsy violin" or "gypsy fiddle" as a start. This style has been very influential over the years. For a more classical take on it, try Bela Bartok's Romanian Dances or Braham's Hungarian Dances. For a more modern spin, look up "gypsy punk." From the comments (@...

Erhu The erhu (Chinese: 二胡; pinyin: èrhú; [ɑɻ˥˩xu˧˥]) is a two-stringed bowed musical instrument, more specifically a spike fiddle, which may also be called a "southern fiddle", and sometimes known in the Western world as the "Chinese violin" or a "Chinese two-stringed fiddle". It is used as a solo instrument as well as in small ensembles and large ...

They're actually both trumpet! The first one is just played a bit more on the quiet side, so sometimes it can sound a bit like a woodwind.

35:21 - 35:45 corresponds to the first four measures of rehearsal mark 48 in the score, which for woodwinds indicates: Flute I, II Oboe (2) English Horn (enters at 35:38) Clarinet in A (2) Bass Clarinet in A (2) Bassoon (2) The bassoon and bass clarinet play slower-moving parts; the other winds play the more sweeping figures above the string melody.

There are a lot of synthesizers, electric bass and drums: Lou Gramm – lead vocals Mick Jones – keyboards, synthesizer, backing vocals Rick Wills – bass, backing vocals Dennis Elliott – drums Tom Bailey – synthesizers Don Harper, Jennifer Holliday, New Jersey Mass Choir of the GMWA – backing vocals [source]

This is a de-tuned (deliberately out-of-tune) piano, with a heavy amount of reverb added. It is made yet more eerie with the addition of some dissonant (violin-family) string instruments. Reverb, which suggests a big empty chamber, and dissonance, which can introduce a feeling of "wrongness," are two of the most common techniques for making something sound ...

The original track is made by Kid Koala. You can see the whole recording session in the movie, here. The table drums you are looking for is a Yamaha DD-20 (4-Pad Digital Drums) The other devices or instruments he uses are: Casio TA-10 Electronic Organ. 32 keys electronic keyborad that features a tape recorder/player. Miles' model has a broken cassette ...

I suggest you to watch this live recording by The Danish National Symphony Orchestra. The requested instrument is an Electric Guitar. You can also find: Jews Harp Tubular Bells Whistle (by a man, Alessandro Alessandroni in the soundtrack, by an Ocarina in the live performance) Drums Choir Symphony Orchestra

The optical appearance suggests tubular bells after some terrible accident. I would challenge the non-traditional statement however.

A lot of the comments think it's a jews harp but I don't think it's a real instrument at all. A jews harp has a lot more 'twang' in it & though you can kind of 'speak' whilst playing it, you can't get that kind of quick-change filter detail that I'm hearing. I think it's one of two possibilities a synthesiser played through a talk box The two most ...

The percussive "clunking" sounds like a combination of a few techniques: col legno - when a string player hits the string with the wooden part of the bow. The sound produced is more piercing and percussive. Sample clip here. pizzicato slap - when a string player plucks the string so hard that the strings hit the wood of the neck. The sound produced is more ...

You can see that there is a percussion instrument on Zakir's left that looks like a thick book bound with a belt. What exactly is this instrument? Is it really just a book ? Yes , it is just a thick book ! But again , it is not 'just' a book , but an Amplified book . He used this Amplified book as a Percussion instrument in several other concerts too . Here ...

This is definitely a jews harp, also known as a jaw harp. https://youtu.be/G36qmpj50e8 This video is a little in depth, but around the 1 minute 8 second mark he starts demonstrating how he modulates the sound dramatically all with one jaw harp. Furthermore, you can hear metal plucking in the Rayman song which is the characteristic jaw harp sound. You ...

The instrument, I think it's simply a violin ! As far as similar music is concerned, try starting with the album that this track is featured on - 'Flood' by 'They might be giants'

This instrument is called Sousaphone. You can check the credits on Discogs and see there is no bass guitar. Baritone Saxophone – Uttama Hubert Drums – Eamonn Hall Sousaphone – Tycho Cohran Trombone – Saiph Graves, Seba Graves Trumpet – Amal Hubert, Gabriel Hubert, Jafar Graves, Tarik Graves You can hear a demo here.

It's possible this is just an electronic instrument setting, but it sounds to me like a tuned idiophone -a percussion instrument in the xylophone family --played with hard mallets that are being allowed to bounce. It's hard to tell which one exactly. It's not quite low enough for a marimba (note the clicking effect) or mellow enough for a vibraphone, and ...

It's an Indian bansuri flute played by Ashwin Srinivasan

Doing a quick Google search on your label information ("Hemosch Musikinstrumente") identifies this as an archtop guitar sold under his own label by instrument dealer Heinrich Moritz Schuster (HeMoSch), but likely manufactured at the Todt workshop: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://www.guitardoc-vintage.de/vintage-lounge-...

There's a full symphony orchestra: strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. It sounds like there is also a full pipe organ playing. It becomes a bit more prominent around the 39s mark. Maybe that's what you are hearing. Classical composers often added a full organ at climactic moments. Richard Strauss adds the organ on the last chord of the opening fanfare ...

It sounds to me like a charango. Your song appears to be from Ecuador, where the charango is common. The charango is a small Andean stringed instrument of the lute family, which probably originated in the Quechua and Aymara populations in the territory of the Altiplano in post-Colombian times, after European stringed instruments were introduced by the ...

Just to muddy the waters further, I'm going to put my vote in for oud. Right range, right timbre, and mentioned in this interview -- not in connection with "Stranger", but an offhand comment about the instrument that suggests it was on his mind. Note that the interview and this version of Stranger are from the same year (2017). Interview: Ellie ...

Sounds like a harp, but not a full-size concert harp. The sound is similar to 12-string, or other instruments related to the guitar, but there is a low note at 1m16s which has such resonance it could only really be played on a harp. I'd think most likely a Celtic harp. Could also be a small harp from another folk tradition, Andean harp, Jarocho harp, ...

There's a mixed woodwind section playing the line in harmony, but the two oboes dominate the sound. The two flutes are only really audible at the end of the excerpt. The musicians you hear are very probably the ones in the video, but the editing is very poor and not synchronized to the music.

Stravinsky uses an unusual division of the strings in this piece. There is a section of five solo strings (two violins, viola, cello and bass), the 'Concertino', as well as the usual tutti string section, the 'Ripieno'. The two excerpts you mention are slightly different. In the first one the solo second violin, viola and cell are all playing pizzicato ...

I'm pretty confident that this is a modern synthesizer playing a note from a "string ensemble" setting. It definitely a "string" sound, but it doesn't sound like a solo violin, and it's too perfectly identical each time to be an actual string ensemble. Older synthesizers had string sounds that were more easily recognizable as fake, but ...

That is indeed an organ. Maybe barrel orgen which imitates an pipe organ. This info is not that specific because barrel organs imitate a whole orchestra, so the sound range of barrel organs is quite wide and divers. I only found similar barrel organs, but not the one with the exact same sound (yet). BUT you can find very close soundpieces in Haunted ...

Instrument: sounds like a violin, plucked (pizzicato). Example from YT. The sample is only a few seconds long, hard to determine genre. "Incidental music" as genre, perhaps - could image it ending a scene or linking two scenes. The sample would be described as a Sting, "short musical phrase, primarily used in broadcasting and films as a form of punctuation"...
