After a successful year in London, Classic Album Sundays, a project which gives music lovers an unmatched chance to live the ultimate audiophile experience, will debut in New York City on March 11.
Classic Album Sundays aims to gather music enthusiasts who want to immerse themselves in their favorite music. Classic Album Sundays lets audiophiles immerse themselves in their favorite music. Every first Sunday of the month, people have the chance to listen to different classic records. Vinyls are played on an A-class hi-fi sound system, so that listeners can experience the music as it was originally recorded.
Nowadays, people are forced into a busy rhythm, overwhelmed by communication and virtual interaction. Few people have the chance to listen to an entire record, from beginning to end, without being interrupted by emails, Tweets, or other external events. Furthermore, the technological progression led people to listen to music in MP3 format through low quality headphones.
Classic Album Sundays’ events give people the chance to get lost in the deep soul of a record. During the first stage of the event, tracks from related and influential albums are played, and the record’s story is presented by Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy and her special guests, This sets the context in which the album was conceived, giving the audience an opportunity to understand it better.
After this introduction, the full album playthrough starts. People are free to sit, lay down on cushions, or dance as they please, so that they can enjoy the experience and share their passion.
The sessions are shaped by Murphy herself, who enriches the experience with her vast knowledge of music, gained through years in the music business. Originally from the US, she has been a radio broadcaster, a music writer and producer, as well as a respected club DJ.
Classic Album Sundays features a variety of music genres, including rock, pop, soul, and jazz, from the ’50s on. Since the opening, the events have taken place every first Sunday of the month, at the Hanbury Arms in London. Classic Album Sundays has also occasionally performed in association to festivals in the UK and exhibitions at the Idea Generation Gallery in London.
The inauguration of the American sessions will feature Bob Dylan’s ‘Blood on the Tracks,’ considered by many one of his best albums. The event will take place on March 11, at Bellwether in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, from 5:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. (ET). Tickets for the event can be purchased here.
