In a few days, the night skies around my town will be exploding with bursts of color as the country celebrates what we call Independence Day.
Bad day for animals, both domestic and wild, terrified by the explosions.
Sometimes when I am in the mood, I love to throw on some sonic fireworks. Let ‘er rip. Turn up the volume and celebrate the glory of dynamics and bottom end.
I suppose we all have our little stashes of such music at the ready.
I used to crank up Telarc’s 1812 but while it is certainly dynamic and spectacular, it’s not a particularly good recording. It suffers greatly from the digitits of a long-ago recording process.
What’s your favorite sonic fireworks?
