SUGGESTION: Download MP3 Files FIRST (right-button 'save target as' on PC) as the CONCERT length files are LARGE and download is much faster if first saving these files to your computer or hand-held wireless devices.

ALL DSM recordings are naturally encoded with full multi-channel ambient surround-sound of the environment in which they're made.

Recordings below are all made using DSM™ 2-channel mics direct to an analog cassette, but mostly using digital DAT, MD, and the newer audio flash card 24bit HD decks. Then the master recordings are transferred as wav file format before MP3 encoding for uploading to this site.

Read about the specific recording equipment used in the notes (plain text) accompanying each music or sound file.

Suggest downloading various tracks of interest, then directly burning a CD or DVD jukebox audio disc for playing on any CD/DVD/Blueray DVD players.

Listen on open-air (way better than closed) or ear-bud type headphones (avoid noise canceling type phones), 2-channel stereo speaker, and surround multi-channel speaker systems. See tips for best imaging speaker alignment.

DSM recorded 2-channel stereo will playback the exact as-heard 360 degree surround sound the recordist experienced during the live event on all 4, 5.1, 6.1, and 7.1 cinema type video playback systems with Dolby Pro Logic II or DTS NEO-6 decoder turned on! Suggest using the MUSIC MODE setting on Dolby and DTS decoders for natural sound without decoder artifacts.

ACOUSTIC WORK IN PROGRESS

   
  Leonard and Debbie,

I've just put up at Head-fi.com several links to free downloads of binaural recordings, and your site is mentioned at the top of that list, of course! I also just placed at the bottom of that post (as these are all being collected in post #1) several recordings I made of Pamela Branscum playing a laptop mountain dulcimer by a stream. She sings in one of the tunes, and for a finale plays a jaw-harp solo. This is recorded, vocal and all, with just with the DSM-6S/M's worn on my glasses.

You are welcome to use these mp3's to demo your mics, with mine and Pamela's permission.

(EDITOR'S SUGGESTION: The following selections are ENCODED WAY TOO LOUD, and heard best by TURNING DOWN usual listening volume setting to ~50-60% for best experience.)

Track05SongMtnDulcPBJet.mp3
Track07MtnDulc.mp3
Track08MtnDulc.mp3
Track09MtnDulc.mp3
Track11JawHarp.mp3

Though the 6S/M is not normally used for solo acoustic instruments, these recordings attest that they can certainly be used with success for that application. I have made many fine recordings of organ performances also with these mics, though I cannot get permission to make those recordings public, unfortunately. Have to find some organists with freer minds! I've recorded some PA'd street concerts here in Winston-Salem, NC but those just aren't as satisfying as the un-amplified instruments' recordings.

Pamela and I have just agreed to work on a whole series of mountain and hammer dulcimer recordings featuring these mics and will be using several of your multitrack techniques, and a couple inspired by those. For instance, we are going to record a lively playground, and create a composite finished take from those tracks with some "hits" as they say in the movies, then we are going back to the same site during a quiet time (but same ambiance), setting up the mic in the exact same location and recording the dulcimers. Finally we will mix it all together! This is adopting your rule that the "room" or space stay stationary to establish the relative ambiance cues keeping them consistent throughout.

We will also be creating a good composite recording of a good crackling fireplace, and will try playing that over speakers in my studio while she plays the dulcimers and sings with the sound of the fireplace being "placed" with her in that new space. We're not sure how that will work out, but it is worth a try. The theme of this project is to have a continuity presented throughout the 1-hour CD where the feeling of "being there" continues throughout without breaks or silences between, transitioning via gentle segues instead. I will certainly share the fruits of those labors with you both! I'd like for you to share in the fun your microphones are giving us!

Here is the direct URL to that post in full form in case the link was filtered out above:
http://www.head-fi.org/forums/showpost.php?p=2723098&postcount=1

You may right-click and download the tunes from that website just fine if you wish the security of serving them from your own server. I hope you both enjoy them, even if you do not find you wish to include them at your site at this time.

All the best!

Response from the dulcimer recordings made with the DSM mic's was pretty positive! I have some more recordings here made with the same equipment of some street musicians performing on Trade St. in Winston-Salem, NC, which is the Art District there. These are just for fun, folks - this is just jamming with flute and percussion - yes, and that's me playing the flute, and friends Rico and Tabia and their kids are playing the fine percussion, with my friend Laura wearing the DSM mics. Years ago, I made my living as a street musician during several periods of my life, so this was a fun way for me to relive one of my favorite activities ever! This was recorded back in early autumn of 2001 for a Gallery-Hop event to help out and bring some ambiance to the scene - it was nice and warm and southern-style nighttime summery.

flute_on_trade_st_track_08.mp3

flute_on_trade_st_track_11.mp3

 

There is no processing on these other than running through mp3 gain to take out any spikes made within the mp3. At 256 Kbps VBR, the longer ones are large downloads (16 and 20 megs) - well, when the download finishes, there you'll have a nice file, so it's worth the wait for the reverbs! (On most browsers you may simply click the link and it will play in Quicktime as it downloads into your cache.) Music critics, just don't even bother! This is for the ambiance and fun of the live energy outdoors of a summer street scene! (Well, the music is enjoyable, and several folks listen to this as a CD in their car a lot, sure... but listen to this for the "vibe" - the reverb tails and sonic energy of it all!)

Again, musically, this is no big deal (especially the flute player!), but the experience of the street ambiance is fun! There's even a distant train whistle on the first track, and you can hear people's car radios and a distant trumpet in a couple places. The flute is quieter than the drums just like really being there it is, etc. Unplugged and raw! Enjoy!


Hopefully, some great organ tracks will be coming soon! The organist wishes to remain anonymous as these were just recorded as school demos, but in my opinion the performances are very nice and the sound is quite incredible! So, watch this space for those!

UMPQUA VALLEY BLUEGRASS BAND
UMPQUA VALLEY BLUEGRASS BAND is a five-piece traditional bluegrass band keeps their music rowdy, rawboned, rustic & true to roots.

Band members include Liz Crain (fiddle, guitar), Gene Hodson (bass), Mac Parker (banjo, guitar), Joe Ross (mandolin, guitar) and Francis Stephenson (guitar).

The band members, who also sing, have many decades of experience playing bluegrass, classic country, gospel, western swing & other music.

They also love to jam, lead workshops, participate in band scrambles and support all events.

Umpqua Valley Bluegrass Band formed in the spring of 2010 when they saw a classified ad for "Bluegrass Band Needed for Pig Roast BBQ." Umpqua Valley Bluegrass Band now plays at festivals, fairs, pubs, restaurants, weddings, farmer's markets, craft fairs and other occasions throughout southern Oregon.

  This event was documented by Leonard Lombardo (Sonic Studios) using his custom Stereo-Surround mic system into a Sony PCM-M10 audio recorder, and video using Panasonic DMC-FZ100 & ZS3 cameras.

Four out of five members of The Fixx, vocalist Cy Curnin, guitarist Jamie West-Oram, keyboardist Rupert Greenall and drummer Adam Woods have been together since forming in 1980 except for a brief band hiatus in the mid-90's. Though they've rotated through five bassists, Dan K. Brown is the de facto fifth member, with them during their prime hit-making years from 1983 to 1991 and also back with the band since 2007. An intact lineup from their heyday! How often can a 30-year-old band advertise that?

Dave Bartholomew's PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND

Dave Bartholomew (born December 24, 1920, Edgard, Louisiana) is a musician, band leader, composer and arranger, prominent in the music of New Orleans throughout the second half of the 20th century. His band consisted of himself, drummers Terces LaBune and Randy Quinson and guitarists Larry Sands and Samuel Kane.

He first learned to play the tuba but the trumpet later became his main instrument. His professional career began in New Orleans, when he put together a group that included Alvin 'Red' Tyler, Earl Palmer and Lee Allen.

External video Oral History, Dave Bartholomew shares early moments of his life story. interview date March 27, 2003, NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Oral History Library

He began recording in 1947 for De Luxe Records, but the company folded and he received little recognition. In 1949, however, he began working with Lew Chudd's Imperial Records as an arranger, bandleader and talent scout. He produced hits from Earl King, Tommy Ridgley, Robert Parker, Frankie Ford, Chris Kenner, Smiley Lewis, Shirley & Lee and Fats Domino, among others. He was responsible for the arrangements on the Fats Domino hits in the 1950s including the best seller "Blueberry Hill". He left Imperial in the mid-1960s and moved between several labels, including his own Broadmoor Records (named for his neighborhood of New Orleans, Broadmoor).[3]

As of 2009 he is still involved in the music business and releasing recordings of his own. He also plays traditional jazz trumpet at Preservation Hall, despite his millionaire status.

Dr. JOHN PLAYS SOLO

OT's Soquel, CA 1987

Malcolm John "Mac" Rebennack, Jr. (born November 21, 1940), better known by the stage name Dr. John (also Dr. John Creaux, or Dr. John the Night Tripper), is an American singer-songwriter, pianist and guitarist, whose music combines blues, pop, jazz as well as zydeco, boogie woogie and rock and roll.[1]

Active as a session musician since the late 1950s, he came to wider prominence in the early 1970s with a wildly theatrical stage show inspired by medicine shows, Mardi Gras costumes and voodoo ceremonies. Rebennack has recorded over 20 albums and in 1973 scored a top-20 hit with the jaunty funk-flavored "Right Place Wrong Time", still perhaps his best-known song.

The winner of six Grammy Awards, Rebennack was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by singer John Legend on Monday, March 14, 2011

 

 

Great performance with good to excellent recording quality as first 10-15 minutes a lot of stuff happened until getting an acceptable place and recording setting. About half way into the fist set the audience decided against the dance floor chair seating removing every chair, including my own, from the dance floor. As the crowd danced, I took my chair and sat drectly at the piano's end directly facing Dr. John. He took a very long look at me seated there staring at him, but decided after a few seconds I meant no harm continuing without a second look.

Graham Wiggins, aka Dr. Didg, plays a 1500-year old Aboriginal wind instrument called a didgeridoo - traditionally a long piece of wood hollowed out by termites.

Utilizing looping effects, he leads his improv-heavy rock band into magical realms of danceable bliss, spicing up the modern musical recipe with an ancient and unusual flavor.

The good doctor is serious about merging the past with the present, having earned a PhD in physics from Oxford before living with the Australian Aborigines to master their techniques.

Willem Breuker Kollectief Johnny D's Uptown Lounge

Somerville, MA USA, September 22, 2004 - Founded in 1974, the Willem Breuker Kollektief has been bringing their joyous and virtuosic blend of jazz, European traditions and Dutch humor to a worldwide audience for well over 25 years now.

"Rarely has any band, inside or outside jazz, combined instrumental virtuosity and antic irreverence so thoroughly."

--The Boston Globe

For more than three decades, saxophonist-clarinetist-composer Willem Breuker and his 11-member Amsterdam-based Kollektief have been a leading force in European new jazz.

A circus of sounds and stage high jinks punctuate their improvised music--one minute mining a hot Euro-jazz groove, the next tearing into classical repertoire with vaudevillian bliss.

The Kollektief, one of the most refreshing large ensembles on either side of the Atlantic, has intrigued global audiences since 1974. Its joyous big-band sound, the eclecticism and complexity of Breuker's compositions, and the dependable tightness of the ensemble continue to inspire musicians worldwide.

Dear Leonard,

You mentioned that you may want to put some of the bagpipe files on your website and I thought you might want the performers name. He is Greg Campbell from Stillwater Oklahoma. He is a former Vet Med Professor from Oklahoma State University. The recording was made at the Marland Mansion in Ponca City Oklahoma. I used the DSM 6S/M with a LiteGUY on a Shure S15A 15' aluminum telescoping stand with a Sharp SR60.

Please Be Good! - Mark Ragsdale

Mile Post Eight's 4th public appearance

   
September 15, 2006 Culvers Restaurant, Sutherlin, Oregon
  Description of Events:    
 

While driving by Culvers after all day errands in neighboring city Roseburg, heard the clear sound of a trumpet sounding through the open doors.

A new group to the area was playing and the owners had thrown wide the antique 'meat market' doors giving the dinner crowd and surrounding area a few entertaining hours. I arrived near the end of the first set and found the best seat in the house near the side wall (see photo view) recording this impromptu demo collection of cover songs.

RAY BROWN TRIO

w/ GENE HARRIS

Jazz Bass & Jazz Pianist Masters

Kuumbwa Jazz Club, Santa Cruz California

Raymond Matthews Brown (October 13, 1926 – July 2, 2002) was an influential American jazz double bassist, known for extensive work with Oscar Peterson among many others

A major early influence on Brown's bass playing was the bassist in the Duke Ellington band, Jimmy Blanton. As a young man Ray Brown became steadily more well known in the Pittsburgh jazz scene, with his first experiences playing in bands with the Jimmy Hinsley Sextet and the Snookum Russell band.[2] After graduating from high school, hearing stories about the burgeoning jazz scene on 52nd Street, in New York City, he bought a one way ticket to New York. Arriving in New York at the age of twenty, he met up with Hank Jones, with whom he had previously worked, and was introduced to Dizzy Gillespie, who was looking for a bass player. Gillespie hired Brown on the spot and he soon played with such established musicians as Art Tatum and Charlie Parker.

From 1946 to 1951 he played in Gillespie's band. Brown, along with the vibraphonist Milt Jackson, drummer Kenny Clarke, and the pianist John Lewis formed the rhythm section of the Gillespie band. Lewis, Clarke and Jackson eventually formed the Modern Jazz Quartet. Brown became acquainted with singer Ella Fitzgerald when she joined the Gillespie band as a special attraction for a tour of the southern United States in 1947.[3] The two married that year, and together they adopted a child born to Fitzgerald's half-sister Frances, whom they christened Ray Brown, Jr. Fitzgerald and Brown divorced in 1952.
