Tuesday, April 23, 2019

PMC are having a multichannel jazz extravaganza at the High End Show, Munich next month, with remixes of  Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue andSketches of Spain.Working with the Miles Davis estate, PMC USA’s Maurice Patist (above left), Grammy winning engineer David Rideau (above right) and Senior Engineer Steve Genewick (above centre) gained very special permission to remix these classic jazz albums into Dolby Atmos. 

“A few years back David and I worked together on a presentation of Sketches of Spainin 5.1,” says Patist, “And the Miles Davis family were very happy with the results, so I went to them and said how about a Dolby Atmos mix for Kind of Blue andSketches of Spain? We were delighted when they said yes and arranged for the original master tapes to be retrieved from Sony’s Legacy Recordings for us to work with.” Finishing the mix, the family were invited to Capitol to hear the results and immediately said, “People have to hear this! This is the way Miles’ music should be heard!” As a result of the reaction of the family and Sony executives, PMC has been granted exclusive permission to share the results with the audience at the High End Show. 

PMC’s founder Peter Thomas adds his thoughts, “This unique event represents the debut of what can be achieved through the sympathetic understanding of the artist and their art. Everyone at PMC is passionate about the authenticity of music reproduction and our close relationship with the artists and studios enables us to do justice to the creative results the artist set out to achieve.”

Joining Maurice Patist, who has credits on the album as engineer and producer, will be Capitol Studios’ David Rideau and Steve Genewick, the leading authority on mixing for Dolby Atmos music. 

Revealing the resolution and detail of these new releases will be PMC’s flagship model, the fact fenestria, complemented by an array of its Wafer on-wall speakers for the surround and height channels and a selection of its professional subwoofers, mimicking the system at Capitol Studios. 

PMC will also be presenting selected tracks from Grammy Award winning saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom, with her Above and Beyondalbum, mixed for this event by long-time PMC users and multi Grammy winning engineers, Jim and Ulrike Anderson. All three will be in attendance at the show.
