From interview of Mr.G.B.Delgado (Ph.D) - project leader of 'Beatburger" series - for "Audio Grail" Magazine
(excerpt, machine translation from Japanese):
- What is the project "Beatburger"?
G.B.Delgado: - We have thousands of 45's records from the sixties, that are long forgotten and the sound is not so good today. But these records and songs have a real enthusiasm and drive of those years. In addition, many pieces are considerable musical interest. "Beatburger" (presents by Beatman) brings it to our present - as if it were recorded today... These records should sound like live performances, full of emotion, spontaneity, and a sincere desire to let people hear this music, as it is...
- But how this can be achieved - after 50 years - with the help of magic?
G.B.Delgado: - (laughs) Yes, really with help of special magic & time machine! I could say much about it, to explain the technical details, but for the readers of your magazine "Audio Grail" is better and easier to show a special diagram that explains the essence of our revolutionary audio technology...
- Wow! It's incredible!
G.B.Delgado: - Probably yes! (laughs) As you can see, this is a very expensive project, but our efforts are to make this audio-magic... This is really a revival and the return of the forgotten groups of the sixties, when the music meant to a generation more than the music... And we hope that this will help to recreate the same feeling for modern audiences...
- Why is the name of a project - "Beatburger"?
G.B.Delgado: - 45's records in those days were made fast as a "fast food", - group came into the studio and recorded live a few takes, without any tricks of multitrack recording. Then just selected the best take and published a 45's record... Everything was simple and fast - like a hamburger - read: beatburger! But just this reason saving drive and emotions of those years - what is most valuable in these records and what we want to bring to the audience today...
- How many issues is supposed to do?
G.B.Delgado: - Today I can only imagine... But the release numbers "Beatburger No 001-999" satisfied readers of your magazine?
- Yes, of course! We look forward to the results of your wonderful magic! Thanks for the interview!
