Producer Tony Visconti walks us through the great individual tracks and instrumental perfomances of ‘Heroes’ by David Bowie, recorded in Berlin, 1977. Great studio techniques and stories from Visconti of Murry, Alomar, Davis, Fripp, Eno, and finally Bowie putting down an insane vocal using a gated multi mic room patch from Visconti. It’s the old durm and strang of Bowie method and results sonically unpacked and mined.

Debussy’s music is noted for its sensory content and frequent usage of nontraditional tonalities. The prominent French literary style of his period was known as Symbolism, and this movement directly inspired Debussy both as a composer and as an active cultural participant.1
Distinct from, but related to, the style of literature, symbolism of art is related to the gothic component of Romanticism.2
