TAGC – Digitaria

tagc-digitaria-ds40u2q-front

This album is certainly ‘different’, and one i found to be an oddly enjoyable listening experience, no doubt helped by it having an interesting mix.

I’ve included the five UHJ tracks from the album ‘Audiophile’ which makes for a rather lengthy album.

There are two different versions of this album. The original release, with nine tracks, was mixed ambisonically and released on LP & CD. Some years later, the album was re-issued with a new stereo (non-ambisonic) mix, with some notable differences, and with two additional tracks.

Oliver Twist – BBC Radio Drama

17 Oct

Oliver Twist DS304f front

After the short lived experimental Matrix H & HJ broadcasts in the late 1970’s, the BBC worked with Denon and the N.R.D.C. developing UHJ. But it wasn’t until the late 80’s and early 90’s they finally broadcast a number of experimental radio programs in UHJ, which mainly consisted of classical broadcasts on Radio 3 and plays on Radio 4, of which this was one.

The Alan Parsons Project – Stereotomy

7 Oct

Alan Parsons Project - Stereotomy DS301f front

Track 5 of the album was stereo, so it was processed with UHJ-SuperStereo/II

UHJ-SuperStereo is a part of the UHJ decoding process that allows normal stereo material to be manipulated into a quasi-UHJ signal that can be processed into B-Format, which enables the decoder to give a simulated ambisonc decode.
