Then hit the Dance Floor
As usualI am all over the map regarding musical landscapes.
Life is grand when your system knocks anything you throw at it out of the park. You get spoiled.
Ful of bass slam and percussion throughout the listening area. Some Bacch-dSP at its best
The bubbles are more interesting percussion everywhere.
I probably listed this above before. But folks listening to Yosi Horikawa prompts me to mention… Moon Phase Gardening by ISOR29, aka, Tomás Garcia Station.
The hell freezes over version of HC is actually quite good in BACCH. The crowd is behind mein my room if I don’t use absorbers since reflections and delay give that sensation. With absorbers it is not as good
I was reading some reviewer talking about how the music that has played over time at Audio Shows has changed. He mentioned be thankful he no longer hears Hotel California. That amused me. I am trying to think of an overused song that comes to mind after my two Audio Shows, both at Axpona. I am trying to think of a track that would send me right out a room. Something like SuperTramp.
What I come up with makes me sad. It would be the demo “music” our pal Edgar uses to demonstrate his BACCH offerings. Yes, what he plays gets THE POINT across instantly. No doubt. But I worry it may put the notion of “nice gimmick, amusing but not for me” into someone’s mind. He needs to play more normal music as well. Maybe he does.
I’ll cue up the live version of HC. Fun. You made me play that one Queen song one night and it didn’t work for me. Strike one! (LOL)
Edit : Oh this sounds amazing! Great call!
Time for NL Keith Don’t Go live on Bacch.
You mentioned the one song that I thought has been over played at Axpona. A fine song and stunning sonics, but it has worn on me considerably.
I was demoing systems once and the salesman wore that out but at least it gave me a rference between rooms. But nearly all systems came up short to my home reference. So that is the only value.
Agree that it is a good demo piece. I lean more towards piano when demoing, usually Keith Jarrett, and have also worn those out as well.
Some of my demos are:
Keith Jarrett - Changeless
Penderecki/Greenwood - Threnody For The Victims Of Hiroshima / Popcorn Superhet Receiver / Polymorphia / 48 Responses To Polymorphia
Hugh Ragin - Revelation
Adam Rudolph/Yusef Lateef Go:Organic Orchestra In The Garden
Jennifer Warnes - Famous Blue Raincoat
Fairfield Four - Standing in the Safety Zone
I need to check thru those. Only know like half of them. Do have multiple HC versions tho. Here is some more electronica to which I am listening just now after a long week away and just back home.
A good album for piano with Bacch with the rest of orceshtra. It sounds so live. Bacch has spoiled me.
