Aerosmith’s Brave New World

Aerosmith’s 2019 residency at the Park Theater at the new Park MGM Resort will be one of the most immersive, state-of-the-art audio and video technology experiences in Las Vegas history.

The show will feature never-seen-before visuals and audio from Aerosmith recording sessions. GRAMMY Award-winning producer Giles Martin, known for creating the soundscape for The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas, will create a spectacular show experience.

Aerosmith has teamed up with THX and L-Acoustics for their upcoming breakthrough residency at Park Theater to deliver the world’s first THX Certified live performance presented in L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound.

Aldous Huxley wrote about the feelies in Brave New World in 1932. My perception is that the work THX and L-Acoustics are engineering together accomplishes that multisensory vision.

For many years WYSWYG, What You See Is What You Get has set the direction for computer technology. L-ISA’s What You Hear Is What You See clearly establishes the next platform for sound art that will drive the creative experience forward.

L‑ISA deploys multiple arrays across the performing zone, allowing audiences to distinguish instruments and voices clearly and to enjoy a level of connection to the artists they’ve never felt before. The results? Better intelligibility, closer connections, and a much larger spatialized zone. The L‑ISA Zone.

Island is a personal auditorium that contains up to 25 professional-grade speakers in a single piece installation for an extraordinary listening experience

Why is this experience so exciting?

Having witnessed The Beatles LOVE twice at The Mirage in Vegas I can confirm it was the most engaging music theater experience of my lifetime. The music theatrics I witnessed constantly replay in my mind.  Giles Martin is an artistic genius on so many levels.

I am confident the immersive experience Giles Martin is designing with Aerosmith, THX/L-Acoustics, and the Park Theater will achieve the next-generation standard in audience realization.

Now I have to just figure out how to get to Las Vegas next year…

 

 

Power in the Blood – Buffy Sainte Marie

It’s been decades since I have heard the invigorating songs and voice of Buffy Sainte Marie on the radio. I reflect upon the folk music era when she was a quintessential performer (early 1960s Greenwich Village). A halcyon period in the annals of music.

Buffy Sainte-Marie’s bold new album, Power in the Blood, begins where it all started more than 50 years ago, with a contemporary version of “It’s My Way,” the title track of her 1964 debut. Its message, about the road to self-identity and the conviction to be oneself, still resonates with the Cree singer-songwriter, activist, educator, visual artist, and winner of countless awards (Oscar, Juno, and Golden Globe, among them).

Perhaps you know Sainte-Marie from her 1960s protest anthems (“Universal Soldier”), open-hearted love songs (“Until It’s Time for You to Go”), incendiary powwow rock (“Starwalker”), or the juggernaut pop hit “Up Where We Belong,” which Sainte-Marie co-wrote and Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes sang for the soundtrack to An Officer and a Gentleman.

Power in the Blood is set to release May 12th 2015 on True North Records.

Buffy Sainte-Marie will be appearing at The Highline Ballroom in New York City on Wednesday, May 20th, 2015.
