Terry Riley music


Recommended Posts

The Ragazze Quartet in collaboration with Slagwerk Den Haag and jazz trio Kapok produce a contemporary music dynamic range spectacular in their album Four Four Three,

 

 

Additionally while it was recorded with the Grimm AD1 in 64fs, it was post processed in DXD, then upconverted to all the deliverable DSD rates, plus the DXD edited master.

 

If that wasn't enough, it's just been reviewed by Stereophile's Jason Victor Serinus

Four Four Three is also a treat for Surround Sound fans.

 

It was recorded with the musicians in a circle and the microphones in the center. So you get a 360 degree, immersive Surround Sound performance of this album in Multichannel DSD playing some very eclectic music. What Jared Sacks calls a "Full Multichannel DSD Recording" in his blog post on recording the album.

 

Definitely worth a listen for fans of Riley's music and Surround Sound.

After I saw these guys with cheap IKEA paper lamps on their heads I lost interest to quality of sound somehow. And, I never was able to listen In C until the end, either in author's performance or somebody's else. His other recordings, such as Sri Camel or Songs for Ten Voices are better for my ears.

Try In C Mali, the recording by a one-off group of African musicians that came out last year. It's a real perspective-changer.

Office: MacBook Pro - Audirvana Plus - Resonessence Concero - Cavailli Liquid Carbon - Sennheiser HD 800.

Travel/Portable: iPhone 7 or iPad Pro - AudioQuest Dragonfly Red - Audeze SINE or Noble Savant

I love Terry Riley music and I love African music, some musicians from Mali included. However, very much separately one from other. By some reason fusion idea doesn't work in every case as fascinating as it may be conceived.

Hi Tom,

Does it go into this detail on the NATIVEDSD site anywhere? I could only see the reference in Tech Specs to the 64fs recording, so I bought that, whereas, as you will now have guessed, I would have bought the DXD if I'd known it was the Edit Master. I see they are the same price: any chance of a swap?

 

Best

Hi Craig,

 

Of course, a valid request available to NativeDSD customers. I'll load a copy of the Ragazze Four Four Three DXD to your account. Just click on the "person" icon on the top right, and you'll see it waiting for you.

 

Best,

Tom
