By the way, just in case you haven’t come across TED Talks already, check out the video above first – it does a great job of explaining the concept, as well as being essential viewing in it’s own right.
But wait – TEDx? What does the “x” stand for ? A TEDx conference is the same thing as the main TED conferences, but smaller, local and independently organised. If you think that means it’s in any way a poor relation though, you couldn’t be more wrong – just look at that line-up !
Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends, We’re so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside…
I know, it’s been ages.
And, the way things are looking at the moment, it’s going to stay slow for a while longer yet…
So, stay tuned to the RSS feed for future updates, including a brief summary of all the goings-on of Dynamic Range Day – but in the meantime – enjoy this video about the recording and mixing of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
I was going to say “please enjoy this video”, but honestly, if there isn’t something to delight or amuse you in here, you’re reading the wrong blog.
Lots of people have asked me for albums I think sound great – so, here are some that spring instantly to mind. I should say upfront, this isn’t intended to be some kind of “top 12 best sounding albums ever” list, just some from my own collection that I love the sound of, for whatever reason.
If you take a listen, you’ll probably notice some pretty clear recurring themes – suggestions in the comments, please ! I’ve included the Amazon affiliate widget above so you can hear the songs, but if you live in Europe this Spotify playlist will be even better since you can listen to complete songs.
Close the curtains, switch off the ‘phone and prepare to lose several hours of your life.
Legendary Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich has launched a new website and it’s awesome. I tried to finding an equivalent British superlative, but I couldn’t ! “Awesome” is the only word for it.
The site is called From The Basement and features exclusive live performances (all shot in gorgeous HD) of artists like Beck, Fleet Foxes, Eels, Gnarls Barkley, Iggy And The Stooges, Jarvis Cocker, Jose Gonzalez, P J Harvey, Queens of The Stone Age, Sonic Youth, Sparks, Super Furry Animals, The White Stripes and Radiohead themselves, all produced by the inimitable Mr. Godrich himself.
