“New York's a go-go and everything sounds right”
Next Sunday (May 5th), three very talented men with special ears (responsible for the production duties on almost two thirds of David Bowie’s studio albums), assemble in New York for the Red Bull Music Academy Classic Album Sundays Bowie Special.
Here’s a bit about it
RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY MEETS CLASSIC ALBUM SUNDAYS: A DAVID BOWIE SPECIAL
Three classic Bowie records. Three iconic producers talking about their making.
12pm - 2.30pm: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders from Mars – w/ Ken Scott
3pm - 5.30pm: Heroes – w/ Tony Visconti
6pm - 8.30pm: Let’s Dance – w/ Nile Rodgers
Classic Album Sundays is about challenging the way we listen to music in the 21st century and bringing cultural milestones to life on some of the world’s best high-end audio systems. For this special Red Bull Music Academy edition we invite the men who recorded and produced these albums to tell the behind-the-scenes stories along with the acoustic treat: Chic mastermind Nile Rodgers, Tony Visconti (one of the driving forces behind Bowie’s “Berlin Trilogy”) and Ken Scott who’s also known as one of the main engineers for The Beatles. This is a rare chance to get inside three pivotal albums from the career of one of music’s most singular artists.
