Exploration - Creative soundscapes

This one might create some joy:
Tool, Fear Inoculum, Chocolate Chip Trip.

It’s on my reference list for drum recordings: it is a great piece to evaluate sound staging on systems (of course you need to be familiar with its sound on a reference system first). If not setup perfectly you can easily spot “holes” from left to center to right. And you’ll learn a lot about bass response, too. Best served loud.

Primoridal on Gaiah Code will make the structure flex with the bass! Wow.

Interesting piece. My sound stage left reaches a few feet further than right as the drums are panning L/R throughout the song.

“Transfixed” on the album Resonant Being. Tests the solidity of your bass and the precision of your soundstage. When done right, it feels like you are propelling down a tunnel, and the room is gone. Hope at least one person confirms this, or I might need to seek help. Enjoy…

The production values on a good many of her songs are top-notch. The album The Well is a prime example of a bunch but there a number of her albums like that.

I still remember her from many, many moons ago as a kinda nerdy songstress sitting on a tripod (chair maybe?) on the Smothers Brothers television show melting my heart with her vocals. Sigh.

A classic, great record by Rypdal…try „Mystery man“.

Not as extreme as some others here but has an interesting soundscape and especially nice music.
