You Don't Know Like I Know - Sam and Dave - [collected from Dave Marsh's Heart of Rock and Soul]
The sound most upfront in the mix is tambourine. Vocals aren't buried, but they're within the sound, and seem to drift a little further back by the end.
Recital - Luciano Berio - Cathy Berberian
hiding behind not hiding behind, or how we forget the puppeteer.
Concerto for String Quartet, Brass, Winds & Percussion - Walter Piston - Seattle Symphony, Gerard Schwarz [recorded from a radio broadcast]
A nice enough piece, by the book.
She's Got A Way - Billy Joel [from The Essential Billy Joel]
Under African Skies - Paul Simon [from The Essential Paul Simon]
I guess I'm a sucker for essentials.
Ages ago, it seems, I was active on the classical music forum on CompuServe and got acquainted with Micheal. He and I shared some sounds and then lost track of each other as the internet morphed under us. I was saddened to learn, as I looked him up this afternoon, that he passed away a few years ago, far too soon, at the age of 49.
The whole stays put.
Through it details flow, either pitchvertical or pointblankhorizontal.
Distance, Dance, Discern - Ryan Hare [from Intrada]
The relation between what is electronic-produced and what is acoustic-recorded is here uneasy. the EP is in a big space or makes a miniature me. AR is practice-room flat. Each pushes the other to be the real, neither vanquishes.
