Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: That Audiophile thing again
« on: August 18, 2015, 06:52:12 AM »
Now on the subject of audiophilia...yes it gets crazy. Many of these guys have playback systems better than the gear used to originally record the music.

Yep, so often people with very expensive gear are looking for qualities and subtleties in recordings that are simply not there.

Thought I'd mention here that I currently have Perceived Distances (2008) available
for just $2.50 at Bandcamp should anyone be interested.
It's a fine collection if you don't have it :

Wow! Great thing to attempt, Julio. Excellent !
It's going to be hot  !!!

Reminds me that La Vuelta a Espaņa is later in August, last of the three big cycle races.

Do people ever cycle the Camino, I wonder?

I liked that  :)

Just released on DataObscura.

   
 
DARWIN RAYMOND and JACOB NEWMAN :: transitions

Darwin Raymond (Ohio) and Jacob Newman (Colorado) combine their talents to create an original
and immersive album of wintry and autumnal drones, textures, and subtle melodies built around
the yearning guitar work of Raymond. Granular treatments and synth additions form evolving layers
of textures and drifting atmospheres that place the listener firmly in the grip of our colder seasons
as they slowly transition towards the hope of spring. It is a fascinating aural journey. 

The album is available as a physical CDr release at DataObscura, or as
a download from our Bandcamp site, where you can stream a bunch of full tracks:

transitions @ BANDCAMP - best for listening.

transitions @ DataObscura - has samples from all tracks.

Please do have a listen.

Comments always welcome.
Many thanks.

I have a new Winterhouse album just out on DataObscura.
This is of course a collaboration with Robert Davies.

   
 
THE WINTERHOUSE :: Slow Awakening

The Winterhouse (Robert Davies and APK) continue to bring us deftly crafted organic landscapes
that are tinged with melancholy and rich with the shadows and details of intimate natural spaces.
Spaces of beauty, seclusion and refuge that appear to emerge from slowly dissolving blankets of
morning mist. The work is both mysterious and enchanting, and is an admirable addition to the
Winterhouse collection.

The album is available as a physical CDr release at DataObscura, or as
a download from our Bandcamp site, where you can stream a bunch of full tracks:

Slow Awakening @ BANDCAMP - best for listening.

Slow Awakening @ DataObscura - has samples from all tracks.

Please do have a listen.

I have a new album just out on DataObscura.

   
 
NUNC STANS :: Further Afield

Ten tracks of lush and subtly inventive drone-style works that flex and evolve, and conjure up
vast landscapes, imaginary flights, and curious excursions. These are works of emotion and are
ripe with fascinating details. So strap on some headphones, settle back, and enjoy the trip as
you travel Further Afield. 

The album is available as a physical CDr release at DataObscura, or as
a download from our Bandcamp site, where you can stream a bunch of full tracks:

Further Afield @ BANDCAMP - best for listening.

Be interesting to hear why you were attracted to this particular synth.

Yep, that looks like a fun instrument, Harry. I could see feeding it through a multi-effect box for some chorusing, delay, and reverb and away you go !    8)

Always a fun and controversial topic.

The "everything you need to know" guide you point to is useful for who's making what available, but the technicals are not really there, and that means the factual science. The assumption that greater resolution equates to better music is questionable.

It is very tempting to see this high resolution revolution as a commercial one, as a way to get the public to upgrade all their listening gear and re-purchase all their music collection (yet again). And even if high res audio were better, you'd also need to know what released music would benefit from being reproduced at that level. You'd need to know that the audio path of the recording artists you enjoy is all happening at these higher sampling and bit rates ... which could well not be the case.

This evening

Echo Delta :: Digital Lifeforms -- picked up this dubby thing last week on Bandcamp. On close listen it didn't work for me. Too generic.

Moved to some Loscil --- always very special and unique. Sort of in the way Biosphere is, if you know what I mean.
