my favourite YouTube 'live performances'


Recommended Posts

YouTube, it's a common resource.

 

I'm fondest of the human voice, often searching out stripped-back on-air versions, evaluating diverse uploads...

 

The following 3, from Andrew Bird's new album, are especially wondrous :

If WFUV Public Radio productions are to your liking, explore more here.

 

And HDMI from Panasonic Blu-ray player to Marantz Cinemarium soundbar is how I listen, watch. Sure, your method might be through a computer. But, our starting reference, YouTube's 720p

Yeah, only when I'm sure its exceptional will I share—here, a personal commitment.

As favourites, am rigorous in choosing which can stand to publicly indicate my...

I find Jeremy Irons' voice musical and have often searched through uploads, this recent example is apt for many reasons :

And always keep in mind: Cognitive biases, like seeing optical illusions are a sign of a normally functioning brain. We all have them, it’s nothing to be ashamed about, but it is something that affects our objective evaluation of reality.

Dennis, searching, I found the following charming even if its sound recording was Lo-Fi :

Because I prefer sitting, lazying on the floor, it's set up like this :

Yes, with short 50cm HDMI cables and a 4.3kg PH-22 to weigh down the DMP-BD81 ; a basic Blu-ray player since it seemed enough, being the shortest YouTube processing path, plus picture is better than either of my Mac minis.

 

However, I enjoy music videos best by using my Consolette, networked to a Mac mini, with smaller screen Trinitron CRT monitor.

 

There are subtleties with each setup I assemble, videos that sounded great in one system, may sound less engaging in the other.

 

It's difficult to share... For example, I like Eva Green's voice, but the audio of this favourite may lack richness, be tinny on your playback chain :
