As last year I tracked each applause for itself - you can drop those if you want the "continous" and uninterrupted space-experience on CD.

I also edited out the (about one) minute of silence after each applause, they used to "regroup" and to reconfigure the FX-sections for the next track

As last year : WHAT CONCERTS - WHAT AN AMBIENCE !!! SPACE IS THE PLACE !!! - hope this will become a steady tradition !!!

Visually the same show as last year (both shows), but again, a most perfect visualization for ELECTRIC MOON's mindbloxpanding psychedelirides.
some beers, a cookie and a highly comfete cinema-chair ... two PERFECT evenings.

and two excellent audience-recordings (still can't decide what recording position is the better one - maybe I try a center seat BEHIND the projector next time)
Except a little cough here and there, there is ALMOST no audience chatter during the whole concert, only a little during the opening ambiences ("Flugsteig A+B") in the beginning of the second sets after the break, when people still returned to their seats.
From time to time the sound is a little bit swimming/flowing depending on my seat position (you could lean back to an almost lying position, which makes a lot of sense, starring into the dome / into the expanding universe ;-) )

For THIS CD-compatible 16/44,1 version I did my usual mastering-EQing (raised heights for brilliance, added some precise frequency to the bassdrum and some more light flesh to the guitar around 1 khz) plus usual light mastering compression, I also lowered all applause parts by some db

Nevertheless, to enjoy the original-head-recording completely I STRONGLY recommend listening via headphones !

no cover-artwork included (I work on a nice 5CD-box-design)

Support the artists!
Buy their official releases, merchandises, and especially their concert-tickets !
And if you want to support them most effectivly :
Buy their stuff at concerts directly FROM the artists or via their homepages !!!


Keep it lossless (if possible - This is no holy grail, but it would be nice if the quality would remain for all future listeners!)
Trade freely!
