"You take my hand,
I'll take your hand
Together we may get away
This much madness
is too much sorrow
to make it today."
-Down by The River, Neil Young
Back in the summer, I wrote a post on music from the 60s/70s and my love for HiFi. Neil Young, one of musics most progressive entertainers and artists, said after he created the album Psychedelic Pill, that you are only actually hearing 5% of the music that he is creating.
Mp3 is the third round of digital music and the round that has actually taken hype by the masses. What we don't know, because we have grown up in an age of digitalized music with CDs, Mp3 players and online access through iTunes, Pandora, SoundCloud and Spotify, is that music once was recorded to hear every single note. This is called sonic sound. The reason that vinyl records were once popular and are making a come back, is because you can hear the music on a level that we have not ever been exposed to within digitalized music.
Neil Young has been an advocate of bringing back this sonic sound and has created a new digital audio player called Pono. The Pono allows for you to hear up to 30% more music than you would on a normal audio player like your iPod or iPhone. Neil Young's Kickstarter campaign was the fourth most funded campaign of all time, raising $12MM in financing and I have pre-ordered my Pono here and if you are a music fanatic, it may be worth checking out as well. Shipping starts in a few weeks.
You can find me floating around with my tubes blazing and my guitar plugged in, jamming out to some tunes from Neil Young. Don't I look like a different person with my hair straight? Happy Halloween, folks!
