Ottmar Liebert – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Interesting. Somebody has gone through my wikipedia page and changed a whole bunch recently.

Ottmar Liebert has recorded with Luna Negra since 1990, sometimes preferring all-at-once live recording and disregarding customary studio resources like editing, overdubbing, etc.–but achieving reasonably quality, commercial results nonetheless.

Reasonable quality, eh? I think that started out as high quality, then turned into highly commercial and ended up reasonably quality

I always thought an encyclopedia is supposed to deal in facts, not personal commentary. Somebody has gone through the whole thing and overall tone has become rather cynical and mean.

Luna Negra’s music is easy to categorize as a pop synthesis of cultural music stereotypes.

I wouldn’t care, if I hadn’t noticed this year that several journalists referenced wikipedia. They didn’t used to, but it has become a quick and easy way to pick up some quotes or background.

Afterthought: I listened to One Guitar last night. I had not listened to that recording in a long while and wanted to listen to the album as a whole in 24/96k in order to make sure that the levels are working and nothing jumped out too much. I will archive the album in form of 24/96k AIFF and FLAC files for future distribution. Since I don’t use any compression on One Guitar, it is important that I make sure the levels are compatible and that can only be done by listening. I could look at the meter, but volume is subjective and nothing beats doing it the old-fashioned way, by listening. Anyway, to these ears, a finer guitar sound has not been captured…

Huevos Rancheros with red chile for breakfast – most likely the last time before I leave on Monday. Then to FedEx Kinko’s to obtain passport photos for the Japanese visa application, where I ran into Jon who arrived to get his. I also returned the two movies I rented on Tuesday and decided that I prefer our local video rental shop over Netflix. Arriving home I promptly canceled my Netflix membership. We are lucky to have a real local video rental store in Santa Fe – let’s hope it stays that way.

Yesterday morning the cargo-bikes raced at the Messenger World Championship in Tokyo, CWMC. As you may remember the 4-time worldchampion, Erik Zo, had joined Team Bullitt for this event. But it was Angus from the Trackbike Shop in Copenhagen,who took the gold. Usually Angus is riding a Bilenky but yesterday he rode a pink Bullitt.
