On October 1 Rachel And I plan to host a touring artist for a very small afternoon performance at our home. Very relaxed, outdoor and room for maybe 30. Details are being fleshed out right now however I am keen to gauge interest in such an idea. There will be a ticket charge ($20, the entire amount going to the artist) via House Concerts Australia which seems a brilliant idea to me. More info on the concept at www.houseconcertsaustralia.com

 

The performer is www.bartstenhouse.com

 

Im hoping we can pull a decent crowd and help support some grass roots music. Let me know if you're keen!!

 

Attendees-

elcamry

TonyM +1

MattJTaylor +1

FrankN +1

 

Possibles-

Darthlaker +1

 

plus about 8 non SNA folk.

Excellent. 

 

Just ts to clarify, this really isn't a HiFi thing, just a music thing. So bring your wife/partner/son/mother/mate as well! Bart says that the golden number of punters to make the trip from Melb worthwhile is 20 so I'll aim to have that number confirmed soon, with extras being a nice bonus for him.

      This is so subjective but I'm going to ask - What do you consider your best live recording?
       
      For me it has been the following (to date):
       
      1/2 The Ramones - It's Alive
       
       
      2/2 Ry Cooder and VM Bhatt - Meeting by the River.

      Kimberley Wheeler Duo is the feature act at Selby Folk Club on Friday 7th April.
       
      I usually see Kim playing upright bass and sharing vocal duties in a couple of acoustic & bluegrass bands, but this appearance will highlight her talent as a singer/songwriter.
       
      Support act will be Cathy Dobson.

      Hi guys,
       
      I am thinking of treating my room. Now, this poses at least two problems:
      1. I do not have a dedicated room, this is my living room so it has to look pretty otherwise you know what wife will do (#divorce)
      2. My living room/kitchen is my only option and acoustically has possibly all the problems in the world (see photo). Moving furniture around is NOT an option. Big window as side wall (as big as the whole wall), which at least does not vibrate as it is pretty heavy. Floor Boards with rug. Low gyp-rock ceiling. Massive wall-mounted TV behind speakers. Heavily Asymmetrical. 
       
      I did not do any measurements and if possible I'd rather avoid doing so. I am after some advice for a first-pass acoustic treatment to get rid of echo which I can hear when I clap my hands and excessive reflections which turn music into a bit of a shouting blob at high volumes.
       
      I saw this and thought it looks pretty enough:
      https://www.turramusic.com.au/pages/CatalogueItem.aspx?CIID=5067
       
      I could treat front wall (side of TV behind speakers) and back wall, plus keep one/two large panels under the sofa and lean it/these against the window to cover the point of first reflection when I do critical listening. If strictly necessary, I could even put a couple on the ceiling. 
       
      I would not use any bass traps/corners because they are ugly and would never be approved. I would try and fix the excessive reflection first (resulting in glare, messed up sounds at higher volumes), then maybe I could throw in a DRC to control bass modes digitally.
       
      My question is what do you think? Worth the cash investment? Would you suggest a different type of absorbing/diffusing panels?
       
      Oh, I do have planar speakers (which I slide off the wall for critical listening) and a pair of bookshelves (just to make things easier).
       
      Any word of advice that are not "buy a new house" or "move to headphones" or "divorce from your wife" would be greatly appreciated.
       
      cheers
