Mark Kimber Classic Album Sundays Canterbury Presents Miles Davis ‘In A Silent Way’

In February Classic Album Sundays celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Miles Davis’ brilliant, divisive and game-changing masterpiece.

In A Silent Way, released in 1969, marked a transitional moment, not only in Davis’s career but in the future development of jazz as a whole. Considered by many to be the first fusion recording, it also commenced the composer’s most divisive phase – commonly referred to as his “Electric Period”. This groundbreaking album would test latent tensions surrounding the future identity of jazz, its relationship with new technology, and the questions of authenticity which these contentious issues would draw into focus.

Whilst Davis was no longer the young, hip savant that he once was, his new relationship with the youthful singer Betty Maybry had renewed the composer’s interest in the contemporary pop landscape. Introducing Davis to the likes of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Sly Stone, Maybry (alongside recommendations from drummer Tony Williams) would unknowingly guide the musician into one of the most distinctive and contentious eras of his work. Nonetheless, Davis’s transition towards this new palette was methodically considered, a culmination of ideas absorbed from collaborators and developed particularly through a new style of performance, which saw his band blend each separate compositions into one meandering flow of continuous music – a style stuck to rigorously until at least 1975.

Join us to experience the album as never before.

Mark Kimber Classic Album Sundays Barcelona Presents Depeche Mode ‘Violator’

Desde el que fuera su primer evento en Londres en el 2010, las sesiones de escucha colectivas ‘Classic Album Sundays’ se han convertido en un referente de difusión y educación musical y sónica. Con satélites en Asia, Europa, Australia y América, Classic Album Sundays regresa a Barcelona para presentar ‘Violator’ (Reprise/Sire/Mute -1990) de Depeche Mode en el espacio audiófilo Nica Bonay, de la mano de Alejandro Asencio y David Smith.

Considerado el mejor álbum de esta popular y oscura British Boy Band por unos, y despreciado por representar el paso a un terreno más mediocre por otros, está claro que el séptimo álbum de estudio de Depeche Mode no deja indiferente a casi nadie. La repercusión global del ‘Violator’ supuso un antes y un después en su carrera e hizo de Depeche Mode que se convirtieran en la aún hoy banda de música electrónica más importante del planeta. Grabado mayoritariamente entre Londres y Milan, ‘Violator’ nos presenta un cancionero de 9 temas y un par de tracks ocultos del cual se extraen 4 exitosos sencillos ‘Personal Jesus’, ‘Enjoy The Silence’, ‘World in My Eyes’ y ‘Policy of Truth’. En boca del propio Martin L. Gore, ‘Violator’ representa una ruptura con la forma de componer y producir temas con respecto a sus trabajos anteriores. Encontramos pues a una banda con sus roles creativos compartidos y un álbum que consigue casar sensibilidades dispares que oscilan entre el baladismo electrónico bailable y el rock de estadio, bañados por un halo de siniestralidad gótica… algo que, según mi opinión, sólo ellos han sabido hacer saliendo semi-airosos disco tras disco desde que publicaran este LP – el más vendido en su carrera – en adelante.


Read: The Story of Depeche Mode ‘Violator’

Bajo la supervisión visual del gran Anton Corbijn, las letras de Martin y la mezcla final del percusionista, productor y DJ legendario François Kevorkian (François K), ‘Violator’ estaba destinado a convertirse en la joya de la contracultura del momento y a redibujar el trazo de la delgada línea que separa a ésta de la música para las masas. Una obra atemporal que sigue enamorando a nuevas generaciones.

Classic Album Sundays Barcelona y Nica Bonay te invitan a redescubrir este clásico y a escucharlo en un sistema de alta fidelidad como posiblemente nunca antes hayas hecho.

Since its first event in London in 2010, the collective listening sessions ‘Classic Album Sundays’ have become a benchmark for music and sound education and dissemination. With satellites in Asia, Europe, Australia and America, Classic Album Sundays returns to Barcelona to enjoy ‘Violator’ by Depeche Mode in the audiophile space Nica Bonay, led by presenters Alejandro Asencio and David Smith.

Considered the best album to come out of this popular and obscure British Boy Band by some, and despised for representing the passing to a more mediocre musical terrain by others, it is undeniable that this seventh studio album by Depeche Mode leaves no one indifferent. The global success of ‘Violator’ marked a milestone in their career and rocketed Depeche Mode into their current status as the most important electronic music band on the planet. Recorded mostly between London and Milan, ‘Violator’ presents a songbook of 9 songs (and a couple of hidden tracks) out of which 4 hit singles are extracted ‘Personal Jesus’, ‘Enjoy The Silence’, ‘World in My Eyes’ and ‘Policy of Truth’. In Martin Gores own words, ‘Violator’ represents a departure point from their previous work in terms of how they were composing and producing. We come across a band that fully exploits each of its member’s creative potential and an album that manages to marry electronic sounds, danceable ballads, and goth rock attitude under sinister lyricism … something that not many contemporaries have managed to accomplish with quite as much grace as they have album after album since they published this LP to today.

Under the visual mastery and supervision of Anton Corbijn, the lyrics of Martin and the final mixing of percussionist, producer and legendary DJ François Kevorkian (François K), ‘Violator’ was destined to become the countercultural jewel that redraw the very same blurred line that kept their former releases from being considered what they actually are today: music for the masses. A timeless and carefully crafted work that continues to inspire generations worldwide.

Classic Album Sundays Barcelona and Nica Bonay invite you to rediscover this classic and to listen to it in a hi-fi system as you may have never done before.
