First up is "Threedom", a jazzy syncopated improvisation on a tune by guitar man Vo Fletcher. Vo and Michael Gregory are full partners in this performance, instead of supporting actors behind the star, Ric Sanders. The way guitar and violin play in unison, then against each other, prodded in different directions by the delicate percussion accents, is a joy. This track, and four more, are repeated in alternate performances on a second disk, but this time recorded specially for headphone listeners in binaural sound.
On my AKG K cans the experience is wonderful, with an improved feel for the acoustics of the cathedral. The recording engineers couldn't resist playing a few tricks, with the instruments moving around from one side to the other, to show what could be done.
This only detracts from the experience, but then if you have a Ferrari, you have to press the pedal to the metal once, just to see what it's like, don't you? Just for the hell of it, I tried listening to these tracks through my Wilson Benesch speakers. Instead of the nicely projected sound of disc 1, the sounds appear trapped behind the speakers and have little life.
So you won't want to listen to these binaural tracks through your speakers unless, of course, you clamp your speakers to the side of your head. That more or less describes the AKG K He toured and recorded with both bands. They recorded an album and toured extensively. Ric next teamed up with guitarist Vo Fletcher in music education projects: the duo supported a Musicians Union initiative in schools and recorded for BBC television.
