When we finish with an Octave release we upload the digital masters to a server owned by Sony that is located in Austria. The upload takes between 20 minutes and an hour depending on traffic.
Regardless of how long the upload takes the data will be identical because our medium exists in a timeless dimension.
Here there are no clocks.
Time does not exist.
And that’s the thing about digital audio: we can transport it anywhere on or off the planet without loss. Using protocols known as checksums, we can be confident each up or download are bit perfect in this timeless universe.
Once we get beyond the delivery phase and enter into the conversion process, our timeless medium enters a different universe, one where time rules the day.
Now everything matters: distance traveled, the road taken, how accurate are the clocks.
Moving from one dimension to the next requires a whole new set of rules and thinking at least where great sound is the object.
