First Record Label to Utilize a DTS 5.1-Channel Track Download for Online Promotion
"This album gives the listener a variety of ragas, including some folk music from two beautiful states of India -- West Bengal and Himachal Pradesh," Amjad Ali Khan explained. "I just want listeners to enjoy the music and the feelings it creates without knowing any technical background. The surround download that Real World is offering in DTS truly submerges the listener."
York Tillyer, Interactive Director at Real World, commented: "The CD album release is stereo, but we recorded the album sessions in 5.1 and thought that offering a download of the multi-channel track in DTS would be a compelling promotion. This music is certainly an interesting alternative to many surround recordings currently available."
"This is a wonderful way for consumers to own a beautiful piece of music in DTS that they would not otherwise experience in surround sound," said Gerben van Duyl, Director of Business Development, Consumer for DTS.
About Real World Records
Launched in 1989, Real World Records has grown into a label of wide-ranging, world-class music from all corners of the globe. Many of the label's releases are recorded at Real World Studios where the live interactive spaces provide an environment capable of capturing the excitement and vitality of musicians "in performance" and can provide talented artists from around the world with access to state-of-the-art recording facilities and audiences beyond their geographic region.
Since the early days, Real World Records has been at the heart of a peaceful revolution in the music business. The label which grew from the success of the WOMAD festivals and Peter Gabriel's exploration of music from other cultures, releases recordings of superb musicians from all over the world. Before Real World, only with great determination, or a lot of traveling, was it possible to access music by artists working outside Western Europe and North America. Now, you can stroll into high street stores and find CDs of music from every continent, many of them bearing the Real World colour bar logo. There's an enormous variety of styles, moods and genres on CDs that bear this logo, but they all have one thing in common -- the quality of the recording and the production is superb.
