Radical Action To Unseat The Hold of Monkey Mind
This definitive set includes at least one performance of every piece of music played by King Crimson in 2015, some composed as early as 1969, the year of the band’s inception, others composed/initially performed at a variety of points since, some new to the tour- all re-invented by the new seven-headed incarnation of the band.
Three themed CDs each form a separate discrete performance - with audio selected from a variety of shows and mixed in hi-resolution from multi-track recordings by Chris Porter, Robert Fripp and David Singleton. As no audience is audible between tracks, this allows for a “virtual studio album” effect, the band using the concert hall as their studio.
Meanwhile the video, available on both DVD and BluRay, captures highlights from a series of Japanese concerts via a number of discreet cameras in “video vérité” style – with neither band nor audience disturbed by filming.
In essence the music can be experienced in a number of different ways – as continuous uninterrupted audio on CD, as a viewable concert performance in stereo or 5.1 surround, or in high-resolution, lossless audio stereo or 5.1 surround without pictures on the Blu-Ray.
