CarverFest Reference Music

One of the reasons I keep coming to CarverFest is the exposure to a vast assortment of music that I normally wouldn't hear. Roy and I set up a couple of PCs in our cabin and he runs around getting copies of cool stuff we'd like to take home. My kids complain I play the 'fest CDs too much. Well.... I've been thinking, what if (and I know it's a hassle) each of us made a CD or DVD-A of our fav tunes and brought them to the 'Fest. We could copy and pass them around. Hell even those folks not going to Bryson City but interested in shining a light on the music you listen to could send a disc along to me, I could reproduce it for everyone attending.

What do you think?

Although mine won't be as cool as Mark's I've already started it. Pulled 5 songs from newly opened virgin vinyl....first plays. That Tascam is one hell of a machine. TT straight to CD.

Re: CarverFest Reference Music

Every year Mark arrives with exceptional music. He started with mainstream and now tries to educate us with things.
This last year he did it also in 24 bit DVD.
Mark is the CarverFest tune guy and I don't see anyone going near that in inovation as well as song selection.

In many cabins guys just play Dire Straits, Steely, or Krall to show off their gear. Nothing wrong with that, but Mark takes it up a notch.
I will be playing his older CDs (if invited).

On the other hand, we can all be people like Mark. (not really)
My gear may be things many laugh at, but my music catalog is incredible. It might not be much as you see it, but has all my favorite tunes and that is what makes it incredible - too me.

I think sometimes we tend to put too much effort on the gear and not enough on the tunes.

Re: CarverFest Reference Music

Thanks for your kind words Bill!

Most certainly, the equipment is fun. But I found out over time that the music you get exposed to is the cool part and lives on if it's something you like. Another part is certainly the people you meet!

So I enjoy collecting the better recorded music that does the good job of showing the equipment and setup strengths and weeknesses. When you go to the trouble and expense of traveling to one of the big hi-end shows, (like NYC or LA) collecting your known and stressing songs is just part of smart preperation and getting the most out of your time, trouble and money.

But one of the big reasons I orginally thought of creating CF discs was so we could have common music to be able to discuss the equipment highs and lows. That must have not really made sense, as I've not seen any of that. But I don't worry about that at all if I've managed to expose anybody at all to an artist that they go out and get. Music they hadn't happened to have run into anywhere before.

Music that you really dig is a true gift. Just like spending time with cool people is!

Mark
