Julius Reder Carlson was back last week to record Anibal Arias’ arrangement of La Bordona, the Tango by Emilio Balcarce, on an amazing 1967 Ignacio Fleta . We were looking for a good piece to try out some mics sent to me by the folks at Telefunken-Elektroakustik – the ELA M260 tube mic system (which appeals to me in part because of the interchangeable capsule system and the ability to use AKG and BLUE capsules, though for this recording we stuck with the supplied cardioid capsule). I’ll write more about these mics soon, but for now I’ll let you all be the judge.

Our friend, musicologist and ethnomusicologist Julius Reder Carlson, came back to GSI to record some more videos for us, playing two more Aníbal Arias arrangements – Aníbal Troilo’s ‘María’ on a 2001 Eric Sahlin and Juan Carlos Cobián’s ‘Los Mareados’ on a 2013 Lucas Martin – and Sérgio Assad’s ‘Aquarelle: Preludio e Toccatina’ on a 2013 Henner Hagenlocher cedar. If you’re interested in any of the Arias arrangements check out this great website that Julius turned us on to. It was established in Arias’ honor by his students.

Julius Reder Carlson is a musicologist and ethnomusicologist who came to the store one day and immediately impressed everyone with his playing. Since then he’s become a friend and we’re very happy to have him come in from time to time and record some guitars for us. Here he is playing Aníbal Arias’ arrangement of J.C. Cobián’s Niebla del Riachuelo on a 2012 Richard Reynoso guitar and Carlos Gardel’s Volver (also arranged by Arias) on a great 1965 Ramirez 1a.

GHIGLIABLOG

Born of an artistic family in which both his father and grandfather were famed painters and his mother an accomplished pianist, Oscar Ghiglia had to choose between a path strewn with brushes and colors and a world cut into harmony and melody.

Though his early choice of life as a painter produced a few hundred water colors and a number of oil paintings, Ghiglia soon realized music was his way. For this decision he thanks his father, who one day made him pose for a painting showing a guitarist. For this he had to hold his father’s guitar, a companion to his artistic musings, in front of his forming works. This painting was the start to a lifetime of disciplined dedication to music for Ghiglia.

Reynoso

We have photos of the new guitar on its way to us from Richard Reynoso, who’s based here in Los Angeles. Reynoso has been amazingly consistent in producing elegant and beautifully balanced guitars. Here are a couple of videos of some previous guitars we’ve had of his featuring Tavi Jinariu and Julius Reder-Carlson.

2014 was an amazing year in guitar videos for us here at GSI. Of course we can only shoot these great videos with the participation of the fantastic players who give us their time, their talent and a bit of their patience to show off the guitars and share some amazing music with us. So we’d like to take a moment to thank all of the players who shot videos with us this year.

We’d also like to thank the folks at AEA, Telefunken Electroakustik, and Ehrlund for providing some great and really interesting microphones for the video shoots. (We’ll be posting some videos with the Ehrlund mics in the next few weeks).

So here, in more or less order of appearance, are the great players who have lent us their talents in 2014 – and we look forward to even more in 2015!

We have photos of the new Richard Reynoso guitar that should be here any day now. We’ve had a few of Reynoso’s cedar-tops and they’ve been consistently warm rich guitars that are beautiful as well. While we wait for the new guitar to arrive, here are a couple of videos of previous Reynoso guitars we’ve had, played by Tavi Jinariu and Julius Reder Carlson.
