PMC REMIX MILES DAVIS CLASSICS FOR HIGH END MUNICH 2019
PMC are bringing two world exclusives to the High End Show, Munich, with remixes of the biggest selling jazz LP of all time, the certified quadruple platinum, Miles Davis Kind of Blue and the Grammy awarded Sketches of Spain.
Thanks to the unprecedented access that PMC has to the leading studios, record labels and artists, the UK-based speaker maker has worked with the Miles Davis estate to enable PMC USA's Maurice Patist, Grammy-winning engineer David Rideau and Senior Engineer Steve Genewick to gain extraordinary permission to remix Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain into Dolby Atmos.
Patist told StereoNET:
A few years back David and I worked together on a presentation of Sketches of Spain in 5.1. And the Miles Davis family were very happy with the results, so I went to them and said how about a Dolby Atmos mix for ‘Kind of Blue' and ‘Sketches of Spain'? We were delighted when they said yes and arranged for the original master tapes to be retrieved from Sony's Legacy Recordings for us to work with.
The Davis family were invited to Capitol to hear the results while the mix was being finished and immediately said, “People have to hear this! This is the way Miles' music should be heard!” As a result of the reaction of the family and Sony executives, PMC has exclusive permission to share the results with the audience at the High End Show.
Furthermore, Erin Davis, son of Miles, and his drummer and nephew, Vince Wilburn, will be present at the premiere. Additionally, they, together with Miles' daughter Cheryl Davis manage Miles Davis' estate and keep his legacy alive.
Peter Thomas, PMC's founder and owner, added:
This unique event represents the debut of what can be achieved through the sympathetic understanding of the artist and their art. Everyone at PMC is passionate about the authenticity of music reproduction and our close relationship with the artists and studios enables us to do justice to the creative results the artist set out to achieve.
Joining Maurice Patist, who has credits on the album as engineer and producer, will be Capitol Studios' David Rideau and Steve Genewick, the leading authority on mixing for Dolby Atmos music. Representatives from Dolby will also be present for this historic event.
Revealing the resolution and detail of these brand new and priceless releases will be PMC's flagship model, the fact fenestria, complemented by an array of its Wafer on-wall speakers for the surround and height channels and a selection of its professional subwoofers, mimicking the system at Capitol Studios.
Plus, PMC will be presenting selected tracks from Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom, with her Above and Beyond album, mixed for this event by long-time PMC users and multi-Grammy-winning engineers, Jim and Ulrike Anderson. All three will be in attendance at the show.
We are looking forward to this experience which will premiere in room F123 at High End Munich 2019.
