1887 did not see as many improvements as previous years to the field of sound recording. It did see the entry of one person who would change the face of sound recording very soon, Emile Berliner.
As stated in the previous entry from late 1883 to early 1886 saw little to nothing in the way of improvements or innovation in the area of the phonograph and its like. In 1886 things change and development takes on a much brisker pace.
In the initial entry of this journey we looked at the original phonograph. In this entry we will take a look at a few patents aimed at improving certain aspects of the device, not only by Thomas Edison but by others as well.
Placenta Recordings, out of Detroit, Michigan, is working with NECRONOMIDOL to bring their last full length album to you in cassette form. This one sort of snuck up on me, I had an impression that something might be in the works but not that it was this.
Hers is an ambitious project I am about to tackle while I get my video recording stuff into some sort of permanent set-up. I am going to look at the history of recording and reproducing sounds from Thomas Edison forward through the years, primarily in the USA as I don’t have access to some foreign patents. I will be looking mostly at patents, the breakthroughs and the failures. From the small changes to giant leaps forward, sometimes glossing over the surface, sometimes going a bit more in depth. Come join me and see if you learn anything.
If you were a follower of the previous version of this site then you will know that I am a fan of NECRONOMIDOL. You will probably also know that they have a wonderful working relationship with Specific Recordings. Well, they have once again teamed up to bring you a vinyl release of NECRONOMIDOL’s most recent release, scion of the blasted heath.
Specific Recordings is a small label located in Metz, France and they specialize in indie artists and limited European versions of Japanese releases. They are always looking for great music to release and once again has succeeded in that venture. This time out it is DOG BLESS YOU – La Science Du Langage.
I have always had a diverse musical taste, which probably contributed to my great fondness for idol music. I the past few months I have been rediscovering all the old music I had put to the side in a dusty corner. I am now cleaning it all off and dragging it back out into the light. This website revamp is part of that. I have decided to expand my coverage of music to cover the many, many types and styles that I find enjoyable. Perhaps you will also find something new or rediscover something you had forgotten about. Below I will detail what I am trying to do.
It has been a while since I wrote anything here, but I did say that when something that I thought was important came up I would let you all know. Well, that has happened. Specific Recordings has announced the details of their vinyl release of NECRONOMIDOL -「scions of the blasted heath」.
June 12th is almost here which mean you will be able to get your hands on what I am listening to as I write this, NECRONOMIDOL – 「scions of the blasted heath」, the next offering from Japan’s premier ultradark idol group.
