Musical Europe in the Time of Caravaggio
The restored Vampyr (1932) blu-ray from Criterion has arrived!
The new Roland Jupiter synth has only been here a few days, but you’d better believe I’m putting it to good use.
I absolutely LOVE Jan Hieronimko in this role as the creepy village doctor/vampire. Can you believe Dreyer discovered him on a random metro train in Paris?
I’ve been waiting a long time for this… Roland’s new flagship performance synth in an ultra-portable package.
It’s 5-part multitimbral with highly detailed Zen-core engine models for the Juptier-8, Juno 106, JX-8P, SH-101, XV-5080 and the RD series pianos. In addition to Roland’s own vintage filter modeling, the XM includes Moog 24dB/oct ladder filter and a Sequential Curtis filter emulations!
All of this in a tiny 10 lbs. package with internal speakers. Absolutely perfect for working when I’m in the studio and on the road…
This week Meyer Sound and National Sawdust announced a new partnership.
We’re talkin’ 86 high-resolution speakers and 16 subwoofers installed behind all of these beautiful wall and ceiling panels. I was fortunate to get a behind-the-scenes look at this amazing setup last month.
This is truly a one-of-a-kind performance space in NYC and some exciting things are in the works. Stay tuned…
