Under the Rose – on SoundCloud

Membership has its privileges… In a couple of weeks we will have a special webpage for the project at this location: ottmarliebert.com/rose. But, you can already listen to the music, and download 320kbps mp3s, at the above location on SoundCloud. Right now the first 5 tracks are available, the other half of the album will be uploaded this week.

Right now these tracks are just for you, but once the webpage at ottmarliebert.com/rose is up (((I will let you know when it’s ready, hopefully on September 15 or 22))) I would love it if you could let as many people as possible know about it. As I mentioned before, we are giving away the music for free.

Again, the location where you can download half the album now is:
Under the Rose – on SoundCloud

And now for something different. Per Steve’s request, more 24/96 files!

You can download the song Sao Paulo, from the album Up Close, in all its 24bit 96kHz glory here. This is a 248MB file. Your computer may or may not play back 24bit files – consult your manuals or friends. Download the file if you have a 24/96 digital-to-analog converter, or to store if you might aquire one someday. :-)

And remember, you have to use headphones to hear the binaural surround-sound on Sao Paulo!

Here is Stephen listening to the song two years ago.

    Exquisite! Mil gracias Ottmar & friends for such listening pleasure.

  2. Adam

    Ottmar – I’ve always noticed Up Close sounds better (or at least more 3D) with over-ear phones as opposed to IEMs (even if they’re nicer) like my Ety ER-4Ps. Does that sound right, or am I imagining it?

  3. Adam

    And thanks so much for posting the beginning of Under the Rose!!! My dorm finally got a set of working speakers today and I can’t wait to have a listen.

  4. Ottmar

    Yes, I agree that old-fashioned “cans” work better for binaural music. Although I think that Shure IEMs work fine and that the problem lies in the open nature of the Apple in-ears, or other brands like that. It creates cross-talk, meaning that the left ear does hear a little bit of the right ear information and that ruins the binaural quality. You can easily check this by cupping your hands over Apple-style ear-phones. The binaural imaging instantly improves.

    The song Under the Rose is a beautiful story of heart felt strings. Beautiful story of life to be heard over and over again and the Rose does not age.
