Ummm - Stick Men - Prog Noir

This thing rocks! Fidelity and surround are top notch. All I can say is WOW! Later when my wife leaves...I am so gonna crank this up and rattle the windows. :LB
And....there is NOT one single song that is weak. This is a home run as far as I'm concerned. Oh, and the musicianship is top shelf.

I totally agree on that! A fantastic album performed by some of the best musicians!!!:)
It's advanced music that probably requires a bit curly brain, but my must be that!;)
Love that album!!!

I am so proud to present this amazing album: Prog Noir with Stick Men that will officially be released tomorrow April 17th.
But for all of you here on QQ it was released yesterday April 15th. as: A delicate Easter Egg from Stick Men - (Here you can purchase the album and stream two 5.1 videos, but I'm not sure how many in here who have a computer hooked up to their surround-system....)

It have been fantastic to work with the 5.1 mix of SO GREAT music and I have put all my soul into making a living mix! For those of you who prefer a more steady mix, the quad mix is made more in that direction.
Serious releases should always come with an instrumental mix, so this also applies to this album. And with these talented musicians, it is extra great to listen in this way, if you sometimes experience the album in a different way or do something else while listen to the album.

Prog Noir new surround mix can be purchased as
- FLAC (5.1, quad, instrumental 5.1) here:
https://surroundmusic.one/album/prog-noir/
(Stereo FLAC on Bandcamp)
- A BD-R blu-ray disc (Including 5.1, quad, instrumental 5.1 and original 2016 stereo mix) here:
https://surroundmusic.one/album/prog-noir-blu-ray/


WOW - This music! Brain Food!!!!:cool:
Will the BD become available from Amazon or another US retailer? Thanks:phones

Took Snood's lead and bought the Blu-ray also - like a good mutt!
Snood still likey the feel and the pictures and tangible fun stuff

Saw today that Xbox is coming out with an XBOX S Digital........no 4K bluray player........for 50 bux less. All games would have to be downloaded from Xbox.

Which means you would pay the same as having the tangible game disc mostly.......but not be able to ever resell it. Of course, by reselling the company looks at that as losing money..........thinking the end goal of most tangible disc companies is to eventually go digital only which would eliminate the the double/triple dipping of resales of used tangible discs. :rolleyes: Not sure that makes any sense, but we are talking about the same idiots that were suing old ladies for downloading only shitty mp3s o_O

Not at this point I'm afraid.

I've been looking for others Disc-on-demand manufacturers. If you guys know about some, then let me know!
I couldn't find any here in Denmark producing less than 100 units (so no one would make Disc-on-demand). Then there was made small investments in Printz Music so I could make them myself.
Shipping to the US here from Denmark use only to take around 7 days and postage is around 4,5$ (worldwide) - So it could be worse!;)

New artist Bernhard Wöstheinrich has his album his new lovely ambient Berlin school album Elsewhere released here: Give the 5.1 video a view/listening!
The two mixes in 5.1 and quad are slightly different, where the 5.1 mix is as Bernard Wöstheinrich & Markus Reuter prefer it (the two of them produced the December 2018 stereo release). The quad mix is more discrete mix as it was first made.
Hope you will enjoy it!
:cool:

Not so far I'm afraid. But that would be nice!:)

I would be able to use HD-Audio Solo Ultra for making Blu-ray-A with still pictures, but know nothing yet about programs that can make Blu-ray out of video and hi-res sound....

Is the sampling rate the same on the Blu-ray for Stick Men as the FLAC download?
Yes for DEEP.
For Prog Noir they both comes from 44kHz 24bit instrument and vocal tracks. For the blu-ray the surround mixes are bounced as 48-24 wav. (These kinds of blu-rays only takes 48 kHz or better) That works a lot better than just converting the 44-24 flac files into 48-24.
In short: The blu-ray isn't in better quality than the flac files.

It's a GREAT honor to present a new name on surroundmusic.one:
KARCIUS
The epic progressive rock/metal album The Fold is just released on:
https://surroundmusic.one/album/the-fold/
Give the 5.1 mp4 streaming of the third track 'Hardwired' a listen there!

For me a empty space since Porcupine Tree stopped is filled with this fantastic concept album! Maybe 'Hardwired' is the number farrest from Porcupine Tree, but nevertheless it's also fantastic!!!:)

More surround releases are planed for the nearest future! Stay tuned!:cool:
