The art of recording

When I started working with Harry van Dalen we recorded: Joshua Samson & Audible Lifestream in 1997 on a Nagra D 24bit 96kHz Digital tape recorder in a small Churche in Amsterdam on the VIA label. After that we recorded several albums at different locations on Harry’s own Turtle Records label like: Tony overwater,Yuri Honing,Deen Peer,Cor Bakker,Karin Bloemen,Boudewijn de Groot,Dick de graaf,Maarten Ornstein,SJACO!,Wouter Planteydt,
The Yuri Honing Trio,etc. Recorded at 24 bit 192kHz and DSD with dCS converters. Our goal was to catch the sound and soul of the performer in a ambient environment as clear as possible.
 Tip: There is a album avalable with a compilation of Turtle Records recordings on Northstar label by Bert van der Wolf
The Spirit of Turtle” remastered in 2 channel SACD, Multi channel pure 24 Bit 192 kHz Bluray and 5.1 FLAC files.Check it out !

The ‘Studio Showcase Series’ is a serie of recording sessions with top musicians in front of a live audience.The concerts are organised and recorded by Sound Liaison in close collaboration with Rhapsody Sound+Vision. The complete serie is available in the Sound Liaison Music store on High Resolution !
