Bjork May 2, 2007 Radio City – Remastered – Lossless Download

September 4, 2007
By

Bjork began her 18-month worldwide tour in promotion of the new album Volta with a week of three concerts in three different venues in New York. The first night at Radio City was her first concert in the U.S. in almost four years, and with new material and an all new band, the result was the most restrained of the three NYC shows. Nevertheless, the concert was a triumphant return to the stage for Bjork, with several pleasant surprises in the setlist.

I recorded this concert from a prime location with pro-quality DPA microphones. However, in my rush to upload this concert to a bit torrent site within 3 hours of the end of the show, I did not perform any post-production work. The remaster posted below was the result of many hours of post-production work in Soundforge which improved the initial recording drastically. The volume levels were increased significantly and balanced, dozens of instances of close clapping or other audience noise were softened or removed, and the high-end peaks were accentuated through equalization.

This recording is dedicated to my friends in the Bjork Hub, the most reliable and dedicated fans of any artist anywhere.

This recording is in an indirect way responsible for the existence of the nyctaper website. Prior to the establishment of this site, I posted my masters on various bit torrent trackers, and in several instances my recordings were then compressed to low-quality mp3s and re-posted without any credit or attribution on bottom-feeder blogs.

In this case of this recording, the blogger not only failed to give credit, but also deleted my comments and insulted me when I sought credit. One of those insults ironically “suggested” that I create my own blog where I could host lossless downloads and pay the server fees. Eight days later, I did.

    I’ve been using SoundForge as my primary audio editor since I bought version 4.5. It really hasn’t changed that much since. What techniques do you use to squelch close clapping?

    You know what a clap looks like in a wav diagram. Zoom in several times, until the clap takes up about 1/4 of the screen, highlight it, and then reduce the volume to about 25%.

    Thanks so much, I tried to get tickets for this stand, but was unsuccessful. This is the next best thing.

    Wow. I have to say, this is the best Bjork live recording I’ve heard–rich, full, and an excellent performance to boot. Terrific job. Big THANKS for this!

    The story is better than the recording.

    Imagine where human progress would be by now, if everyone had the drive to do sh*t like this after someone p*ssed them off.

    Soldier, I salute you. An honorable fight if ever one existed!
