  1. https://www.royalalberthall.com/about-the-hall/news/2019/april/the-royal-albert-hall-unveils-new-record-breaking-audio-system/?fbclid=IwAR0m0YxPqH5Qnb4yBYAmcucNkEgJtUnpNXMk-QKVEvcts-SdL2BmmFxyzm4 On Tuesday 2 April, we completed the biggest improvement to sound in the Auditorium since the installation of our iconic acoustic ‘mushrooms’ in 1969, 50 years ago. The aim of this project is to provide the best sound for all types of shows held at the Hall, and for everyone attending. The 465 permanently installed individual loudspeakers took 28 weeks (that’s 6 months!) of overnight installation works, making this audio project the largest single-room speaker system in the world. All of these works happened during the Royal Albert Hall’s busiest year ever, without impacting any of the 327 shows that were held over the half-year it took to install that many loudspeakers. The new system will be officially launched for the Olivier Awards on Sunday 7 April. Every seat in the house now enjoys equal quality of sound – no matter whether you’re sitting in the Queen’s box, up in the Gallery, or down in the Arena thanks to circle, gallery and box speakers for the first time. Here are some more interesting facts about the install: 693 labour days – it would have taken one person almost two years in total to install the whole system on his own 15,291m of cable – almost the distance from the Hall to Heathrow Airport 211 microphones – one for each of Eric Clapton’s performances at the Hall (including his three upcoming shows) 4 tonnes of cable in total – representing 1.2% of the weight of the iron metal frame of our roof (338 tonnes) This project was made possible by a multi-disciplinary team using ground-breaking installation methods that respect our Grade I listed building and industry-leading technology. The most extensive acoustic surveys and modelling were also undertaken to tackle the very challenging task of building an audio system able to deliver our eclectic programme: in the past year alone, we have hosted many different types of performances, from Nine Inch Nails to the London Symphony Orchestra, Clapton to Kasabian, Rudimental to Mary Poppins, boxing, ballet and everything in between. 3D acoustic model of the Auditorium designed by Sandy Brown Acousticians
  2. Los Beatles siempre han estado delante de los Stones. Algo que los mismos Stones admitirían sin chistar De hecho su primer gran éxito fue ... un tema de los Beatles. 'I Wanna Be Your Man'. Y siempre estuvieron detrás de los Beatles en todo sentido. Y siguiéndolos (o tratando de seguirlos) en cada cosa que hacían. Su sonido fue cambiando en la medida que cambiaban los Beatles. Se hicieron psicodélicos por que los Beatles se hicieron psicodélicos primero. Recién en 1968 vinieron a nacer los Stones propiamente tal. De 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' en adelante. Antes de ello eran similares a todas las bandas de la British Invasion, que trataban más o menos de ser como los Beatles

  4. https://shop.musicvaultz.com/*/Box-Sets/In-Search-of-Hades-The-Virgin-Recordings-73-79-16CD-2BluRay/64IC0KRB000 Tangerine Dream were one of the true pioneers of electronic and ambient music and the albums they recorded for Virgin Records between 1973 and 1979 remain classics of the genre. 'In Search of Hades: The Virgin Recordings 1973 - 1979 - is the definitive statement of this period in Tangerine Dream's history, featuring newly remastered versions of the albums 'Phaedra', 'Rubycon', 'Ricochet', 'Stratosfear', 'Encore', 'Cyclone' and 'Force Majeure' all drawn from the original first generation master tapes, and new Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound mixes of 'Phaedra' and 'Ricochet' by Steven Wilson. 'In Search of Hades' includes 8 CDs of previously unreleased material; 3 London concerts in full (Victoria Palace Theatre in 1974, The Rainbow Theatre in 1974 and Royal Albert Hall in 1975) along with the previously unreleased full soundtrack to 'Oedipus Tyrannus', recorded in July 1974 and remixed in 5.1 Surround Sound and Stereo by Steven Wilson. Also includes 2 CDs of previously unreleased outtakes from the Phaedra sessions at The Manor Studios, Oxfordshire in November 1973 and the surviving 35-minute live recording from Coventry Cathedral in October 1975. The box set features 2 Blu-Ray discs featuring the 5.1 mixes of 'Phaedra', 'Oedipus Tyrannus' and 'Ricochet', along with a 1976 German TV performance and BBC Old Grey Whistle Test broadcast of Tangerine Dream at Coventry Cathedral. In Search of Hades is lavishly packaged with a hardback book featuring new liner notes and rare photographs and memorabilia.
  5. Radiohead grabó sus dos primeros discos de forma digital Para 'Ok Computer' en adelante grabaron en forma análoga. Lamentablemente eso no se nota en sus ediciones en CD. Muy comprimidas, loudness war, ecualizadas, etc Los vinilos son mucho mejores. Me encantaría que hagan un buen proyecto de remixes y remasters a lo Steven Wilson. Sé que sus álbumes sonarían MUCHO mejores!
  6. Tal como puse en el topic del rock progresivo D I S C A Z O Realmente prometen mucho estos chicos Brasileiros. A ponerles oreja! https://horatiosmarketplace.bandcamp.com/album/stratus-luna-hd?fbclid=IwAR0cNRgQzixSMq5OVX_2mEeV064NXSH0Fo8-whtOatmISJl9S1chgmEU9VM
  7. Escuchen a estos chicos! Son Stratus Luna. Banda de Sao Paulo, Brasil Sacarán su disco debut homónimo la próxima semana Tienen apenas entre 17 y 21 años!. Y se mandan este PEDAZO de disco debut. Impresionante https://horatiosmarketplace.bandcamp.com/album/stratus-luna-hd MusicMagick (Brazil) in association with MoonJune Music (USA), present the amazing debut of a very young progressive rock band from São Paulo, Brazil - STRATUS LUNA. Music so mature, and coming from 4 kids who are 20/21/18 and 17 years old! Stratus Luna is a band from São Paulo consisting of the four members Gustavo Santhiago, 20 (keyboards, flutes and sitar), Ricardo Santhiago, 21 (guitars), Gabriel Golfetti, 18 (bass and keyboards) and Giovanni Lenti, 17 (drums and percussion). The group draws from a large number of contemporary styles of music, going mainly in the direction of progressive rock, psychedelic rock and jazz, as well as traditional Brazilian and eastern music. In 2007, brothers Gustavo and Ricardo with their cousin Giovanni, all very young at the time, played as a trio on various television programs aimed at children. Year after year, the sound of the band continuously evolved and improved, eventually converging to the current progressive style. In late 2017, bassist Gabriel joined the others to cap the formation, and introduce even more influences to the music, shaping the band’s current sound. The band’s self titled album Stratus Luna features modern compositions on instrumental progressive, psychedelic rock, and jazz, brilliantly performed by a new generation of young musicians. This first record has been idealized by the band members for over five years, incorporating classic elements from progressive rock music with respect to instrumentation, compositional and atmospheric elements. Consisting of seven instrumental tracks, the album introduces the listener to an imaginative journey through its soundscapes. The intense sequenced introduction and soothing flute and guitar melodies in Nimue lead perfectly to the sense of rushing adventure brought by O Centro do Labirinto. In Zarabatana, the Brazilian baião and classical Hindustani influences are very prominent through all of the track’s sections, but there’s still very much a sense of cohesion between them. The midway point of the album then begins with a breath of fresh air, presenting the track Pandas Voadores. A fun, jazzy piece with great Wurlitzer and guitar soloing. The piece then transitions through a synth composition, NREM-1, placing the listener in a great spot for the dreamy and Moog-heavy Onírica. The album finishes off with Efêmera, a peaceful 70s inspired composition that thunderously culminates in a climactic guitar solo. In the end, the record is an enveloping experience coming from a young band, that introduces a unique and modern approach to progressive rock. credits releases April 18, 2019 Recorded between July 2017 and July 2018.

  8. Lo nuevo de Banco del Mutuo Soccorso Muy experimental!
  9. Friends! We are very proud to give you our latest video for the track “Turn To Dust” from the Walk The Earth album! Here we have Joey with more details….. “This song idea has been brewing for over ten years. When recording our latest album, WALK THE EARTH, in Abbey Road Studios, the inspiration finally kicked in to finish it. Originally an idea and labour of love of Mic Michaeli’s, the video was meant to touch on emotions and observations related to the Life and Death of your near and dear ones, the circle of life if you will, but it turned out to be much more than that as it follows the dramatic journey of the character taken from the artwork on our album cover. Working with Craig Hooper and his animation team was a real pleasure, and after seeing their work on Deep Purple’s ‘The Surprising’, we knew we were dealing with true visionaries. We’re very proud of the result, especially since it’s our first ever animated video.” As director Craig Hooper continues, “A video like this is a very difficult thing to get right. The song is layered with emotion and meaning and to capture that in images is tricky to say the least. The band decided the only way to do the song justice was through animation, where images are limited only by your imagination and together we roughed out a treatment. I then took that to Pete Rogers and Helen Pooler at Bait Studio in Cardiff, Wales, who are amongst the best in the world at this kind of thing and we’d already worked with them before for a video for Deep Purple. They brought on board artist Matt Rooke, who immediately ‘got it,' and between them they gave life to these ideas and images. It wasn’t until the final frame was finished that we saw we had produced something special, something that I hope does a good enough job of representing such an amazing and heartfelt song. That’s up to viewers to decide." Hope you all like it!

  10. Que genial que aparezcan músicos en este foro Como recomendación de audífonos, lógicamente para practicar unos cerrados y con buenos bajos. Over ear. ¿Cuál es tu presupuesto?. Por que hay desde precios bien módicos hasta algunos MUY caros Y en cuanto a bajo, hay muchísimas técnicas. Trata de experimentar con la que más te guste. No hay ninguna regla al respecto. Chris Squire tocaba siempre con uñeta. James Jamerson usaba sólo el dedo índice de su mano derecha todo el rato. Hay otros con mucha destreza y que llegan a hacer "shredding". Pero en lo personal me gusta más el bajo con feeling, que tenga groove, y que por supuesto suene bien. Como debe sonar un buen bajo. Con cuerpo, peso y profundidad

  12. http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/the-rolling-stones-bridges-to-bremen/ 1998 concert film • Remixed audio • Restored visuals • Surround sound • 2CD+Blu-ray, 3LP vinyl + more formats This June, Eagle Vision will issue Bridges To Bremen, a full-length show performed by The Rolling Stones on the final leg of the ‘Bridges To Babylon’ tour. Bremen is in Northwest Germany and the gig was filmed at the city’s Weserstadion on 2 September 1998. By this point the ‘Stones were three months into the European leg of this enormous year-long tour which had seen them fill stadia and arenas in North America, Asia and South America. This was the first tour where fans could vote on the band’s website for a track they wanted to hear at the show, which is why ‘Memory Motel’ from Black and Blue is in the setlist. In terms of audio and picture quality, it sounds promising, since Eagle Vision state that the film has been “meticulously restored from the original masters” while the audio has been remixed and remastered from the live multitrack recordings. Remember, even though this is offered on blu-ray, this isn’t full HD but ‘upscaled standard definition’. In terms of sound, we get uncompressed stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound. A full range of formats is on offer, including 2CD+blu-ray and 2CD+DVD combo packs, 3LP vinyl and standalone blu-ray and DVD. The video element offers four tracks from their Soldier Field performances in Chicago. Bridges to Bremen will be released on 21 June 2019. 1. (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction 2.

  16. https://www.spin.com/2019/04/king-crimson-entire-discography-is-coming-to-streaming-platforms-later-this-year/ CREDIT: Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images The entire discography of King Crimson studio albums is coming to streaming platforms later this year. The longtime streaming holdouts held a press event on Saturday in London, where their manager David Singleton said that the band’s 13 studio albums will soon be available to stream starting in May, as Rolling Stone points out. The move is part of the band’s 50th anniversary celebration, which includes vinyl reissues, a new documentary, and an 50-date international tour starting in June. “The reason we’ve been slow on Spotify is that, unlike apparently the whole of the rest of the industry that’s been telling us that physical is dead, we’ve had rising physical sales for probably the last 10 years,” Singleton said. “But that argument was valid for awhile, and it isn’t anymore.” The streaming rollout starts in May, with the band’s studio albums arriving on Spotify June 10—the same day that the band perform the first date of their world tour. “In the end, our prime function is to serve the music and make the music available,” Singleton later said about the rollout. “Spotify has now definitely become one of the places that people, particularly younger people, find music.” The 13-album rollout includes their 1969 album In the Court of the Crimson Kingall the way to 2003’s The Power to Believe. As part of their 50th anniversary celebration, the band is currently releasing rare archival recordings on their website, where fans can stream and download the tracks.

  18. http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/primal-scream-set-to-release-a-new-singles-compilation/#more-149079 NEWS Primal Scream set to release a new singles compilation Maximum Rock ‘N’ Roll features 31 of the band’s hits Primal Scream are to release new singles collection called Maximum Rock & Roll. The set features most of the band’s singles from across their career, and will be available as a two-CD set and across two double vinyl sets. It’s the first compilation from the band since 2003’s Dirty Hits, and features 31 of the band’s singles from across their career and 11 albums, although they seem to have forgotten debut ‘All Fall Down’ and opted to start the collection off with ‘Crystal Crescent’’s seminal B-Side ‘Velocity Girl’ instead (and while we’re nitpicking, there’s no sign of Kevin Shields’ mix of ‘If They Move Kill ‘Em’ either.) Bobby looking a fresh faced on the cover of ‘volume two’ of the vinyl edition With no previously unreleased or even new content featured – apparently new songs were mooted but didn’t pass muster – it’s very much a celebration of the band’s career so far. Hopefully this is biding time for a 20th anniversary repackage of 2000’s XTRMNTR next year.

  19. De momento que se está escuchando el sistema y no la música, significa que el sonido no está bien Cuando uno encuentra el sonido que busca, cierra los ojos y queda inmerso en la música.
