With that static, vintage look, our music had to have dynamism, energy, modernity. Hence the importance we gave to rhythms: The drum is what allows you to most easily date a piece of music, to anchor it in the contemporary world. Between Moon Safari and the original soundtrack of A Trip to the Moon , we learned how to compose for images.
Our music, in its beginnings, was very pop; it's become more experimental over time We don't make rock music, but psycho-acoustic music, ambience. That's why our music works so well for voyages, and original soundtracks. When they conclude their project, the president selects five other astronomers to travel with him.
They embark in a shell and are shot from a giant cannon to the moon. When they land, they seek shelter in a cave to protect from the snow. They meet the Selenites, the alien inhabitants of the moon, and they are destroyed by the astronomers who find that a strong hit makes them explode. However, they arrive in large numbers and the astronomers are captured by the Selenites.
The first version of the ride involved a simulated trip for thirty passengers from the fairgrounds to the Moon aboard the airship - ornithopter Luna , with visions displayed of Niagara Falls , the North American continent and the Earth's disc.
There they visited the palace of the Man in the Moon and his dancing "Moon maidens", before finally leaving the attraction through a Mooncalf 's mouth. The ride's centerpiece was a ship called Luna III, enlarged to accommodate more passengers. Unlike its original Buffalo incarnation, the new version of the ride passed over a panorama of Coney Island and Manhattan's skyscrapers before rising into the clouds. Most collectors will already have one of the , plus SACD copies sold, and are already familiar with this fantastic multi-channel remix.
The balance on this version is a near match to the stereo mix, but expands to fill the room making great use of all channels. Footsteps run around the outside, clocks and their chimes ring all around the listener, while the intro to money spreads the effects among the five main speakers.
Some quad purists have been waiting for the release of the original quad mix by Alan Parsons done in This version is included on disc 3, and really shows the limitations of the technology, as well as how a lack of time to complete a project truly effects the end results. The sound effects on "Money" were created by splicing together Waters' recordings of clinking coins, tearing paper, a ringing cash register, and a clicking adding machine, which were used to create a 7-beat effects loop adapted to four tracks to create a moving effect in quadraphonic.
The heavy use of multiple layers of sound on the album required the engineers and band to operate the mixing console's faders simultaneously, in order to mix down the intricately assembled multi-track recordings of several of the songs such as "On the Run".
Should play just fine. At the very least it won't harm your stylus Mudd , Jun 11, Location: Now Denver but really Yorkshire. When this was released very few people could playback in quad. It's compatible. We play mono on stereo. You won't get the quad effect though. Not sure about needle drop but nice score.
