Sunday july 26 2015 Photo’s from the concert “Live to Two track“ with:
Denise Jannah and Atzko Kohashi
Recorded at Rhapsody by ANALOG MASTER TAPES
Denise Jannah & Atzko Kohashi
We asked Atzko some time ago if she was interested
to do a analog recording with her, she was surpriced why not
record digital because she liked the articulation.
So I told her the in’s and out’s about recording to analog tape,
She was still not convinced, until we did a short try-out ..
She was completely blown away ! Atzko: “Ohh my god… It’s like a mirror !!”
She called Denice Jannah to do a concert at our store Rhapsody.
We dicided to record this duo at Rhapsody in Hilversum (the Netherlands)
to catch a nice home’like’ ambiance and a great vibe on tape.
The complete signal path is done purely analog with serious
power conditioners and cabels form Shunyata and Audioquest,
The mixer and recorder are Studer’s from the ‘70
We monitored on TAD and Moon
Dispite a knee replacement Denice still dicided to sing for us.
Atzko started playing some nice melodic chords from the song “Daybreak”
Denice started to sing… Woww! so beautiful .. so intense..
The goose bumps start’s growing all over the place!
These ladies are music you can hear that they life it all the time,
so much music, love and tears were falling that day, It’s overwhelming.
The funny thing about analog tape is that after 30 minutes of performing
the tape must be replaced for a new one so there were some
funny moments to keep the mucisions and audience awake :)
The song “A time for love” resulting in tears for Dinice, some
deep feelings rise to the surface, it was so nice to see my niece (Chelsea) gave her a big hug to comfort her. Afterworths we played back the tape and We, Denise and Atzko were amazingly happy with the results!
Recording to tape and keeping the signal path completely analog
and in shape with modern technics, results in a very high-end quality
and “live-like”sound stage.
It’s not even compared to digital at all.
