Unipheye Music is very proud to announce that our first group of new releases will be available for download in a selection of multiple file formats right here next week, with SMRD - Studio Master Reference Disc - high-resolution, studio quality master .wav files on data DVD-R discs soon to follow. Click here to see more projects soon to come.
These are very unique original master recordings of extremely interesting and different music and very much worth waiting for. This is quite the antithesis of the resurrection of decades old symphonic master tapes from the shelves of the vault; they are fresh, new recording sessions of fabulous music from wonderfully talented contemporary artists.
Audiophiles and musicphiles alike are going to be very satisfied. There has been much international anticipation of this for over a year now. We are very happy with what we have ready to offer, as well as what is to come later in the season: Classical Music, Semi-Acoustic Alternative Jazz, Straight-Ahead Jazz & World Music. Our excitement is electric and contagious. It's going to be quite a journey.
Look for the Unipheye Music ad on page 76 of the October, recommended components issue, of Stereophile magazine and on page 112 of the November issue of Stereophile magazine.
Thank you all for your overwhelming response to hearing us played at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver last month.
My romance with music and my passion for capturing it come from a lifetime spent with the Philadelphia Orchestra in my everyday life. My father, Irving J. Segall (click to visit irvingsegall.com) , was a thirty-one-season member of the viola section as well as a founder and chairman of the International Conference of Symphony and Opera Musicians.
My first recollection of the sound of a fine instrument was of my father practicing in our home every day - hearing the rich, warm tone and texture of his instrument. He and his colleagues would read string quartets in our dining room very often.
Even in the best modern, small recital and concert halls, a significant part of the character of the instruments is not experienced by the audience because of the size of the space and the distance from the stage.
It is my intent to share with you the intimacy with the instruments, thus the music, that I witnessed every day of my life, both in our home and back-stage with the orchestra. I’d like to offer you something unusual. Different than emulating the concert going experience as many cookie-cutter recordings attempt - often recording in an empty, over-live concert hall with no audience to act as acoustic absorption.
Our recordings are organic, with qualities that we desire when listening with fine audio systems.
A musician myself, I had the wonderful experience of
working as a recording engineer for the Philadelphia
Orchestra for many years. I've spent decades designing
listening rooms and reproduction systems for the home.
In the years to come, Unipheye Music intends to bring you a wealth of wonderful artists and their work.
CLASSICAL JAZZ WORLD
Listen…. and enjoy the journey with us.
"This was without question one of the finest recordings I have ever heard. Instruments had a more natural tonal quality than I thought possible, and the sense of space they conveyed was astonishingly realistic..." Larry Borden, Stereo Times - September 2007, regarding one of our string quartet recordings.
"I listened to the (string quartet) recording and the realism is striking, almost frightening in its clarity. Audiophiles must love it when they hear a performance like this on their heavy artillery."
Robert Fitzpatrick, Dean of the Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia
"They have everything we look for in recordings - a sense of air and of the size of the recording space. It sounded like the instruments were right there in the room with us - and the rich tone. They are very organic. I got a sense that I heard exactly what you were going for. What's important to express is that you're more than just an engineer.... this is art. I’m very impressed."
Alan Saslow - June2008
"It sounds like the instruments are in the room, my speakers have disappeared – they’re gone – the musicians are sitting right here – the cellist is on the inside, right? This sounds like a record with no surface noise. It doesn’t matter if this is digital or analog. This is amazing. I hear the spit in the bell of the bass-clarinet. I’ve never heard anything sound so real. You’ve taken it to another level."
Frank Stankowski - June2008
"I listened to the recording and I was honestly blown away."
Ben Beilman - April 2008, having heard our recording of the string quartet he plays with
"It was beautiful music! I did not hear any better at the show and I guarantee that I'll be one of your customers. People need to hear your recordings."
Stephen Post - October 2007, after listening to several tracks of our demo CD at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest
"I heard your recordings at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in November. I was stunned to say the least. Thank you."
Clark Blumenstein - Blumenstein-Ultra-Fi.com - April 2008
"I listened to the Bach Partitas for cello about six times. It was incredible. I've always loved Bach, but this was... I don't have the words... transplendant. It took me to another plateau. It's like a great dinner. After I've consumed something really incredible, I don't want anything else for a while. I don't want anything moving in on the taste memory."
Ken Bingham - February 2008
