A few weeks ago I asked my partner in crime and sound maestro Michael to put together the most eclectic sampler CD he could, so we could show some examples of the wide range of music styles, ensemble size and performance setting that we can capture live.
Hopefully we will create a new tradition, and produce one for every year, because its just a lot of fun to go through the archives and select some brilliant musical memories,
We had a wonderful afternoon in the listening room putting all this together. All performances are live and performed by ensembles in Melbourne.
Michael left me with one hitch. He sent me a jumbled track list, which I have tried to reorder as best I can to match with the CD. I think it was his idea of a little musical joke, to see if I could use musical detective work to get it together. Anyway listen to the CD yourself and see if I got it right or wrong.
Look out for our 2016 sampler as bonus CDs or as a thank you for filling in surveys, and do your own detective work.
