The recordings from the first Accidental Powercut gig in July are now available. Full members and P5 product registrants will be able to download all the tracks using the Download Manager or you can sign up for a free trial and download one track.
Accidental Powercut is a series of gigs which are being recorded binaurally allowing the atmosphere of the music to be recorded for perfect playback on headphones. The recordings will be donated to the audio collection at the British Library.
You can find out more about the history of binaural recording here.
The artists involved in the first concert were Jono McCleery:
“the binaural recordings definitely bring the listener a step closer to experiencing a live performance without being there. It’s nice to get a greater feel for the atmosphere as well as the performance.”
“walkin’ through London at night with the binaural recording in my phones I was transported to the gig, not in my memory but to the live experience.”
“I’m currently listening to the binaural recordings, some amazing stuff…really does sound stunning….proper dope vibes”
