If the opportunity arises, don't miss a live to projection symphonic film performance. I've seen "The Wizard of Oz" as well as the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy performed (in the LOTR case, with a 200 person choir along with the full orchestra) and it's an amazing experience. Few symphony's in the country have the skills to pull it off, performers have told me it's considerably more difficult than any traditional orchesteral program. Outside of the impossibility of attending a session at a Los Angeles film scoring stage, you'll be hard pressed to find a more unique visual and music event.
@ThundaGourd: You might be interested in doing a google "Direct-to-Disc at AES by Robert Auld" which describes a recording session coming as close to a straight wire into a lathe as practical. Not for the faint of heart, but apparently the results were stunning.
Interesting piece. I commend Mr. Wolfe's commitment to his craft, but I can't help but smile when pseudo-hipsters prattle on about the warmth and soul of vinyl when Wolfe is feeding his lathe with ProTooled/Burned CD source material.
Take the signal from an old Studer, Otrai or Revox multitrack tape machine and you might have an argument. Better yet, one take, right from the mixing console...
Interesting the author would consider Feist an "Americana" act considering Leslie Feist is a native of Nova Scotia and her other band, Broken Social Scene is generally labeled as a Canadian indie rock group.
In other words, there wasn't a reason to continue reading past the fourth graph.
