Index del Catalogo de Network Music (001-040)

Segunda revisión. Se amplio, se quito algunas cosas y agregadas un par de imagenes.

En este articulo se lista de manera cronológica el 1% de los álbumes ya escuchados y grabados a CD-R. En la colección se guarda tres formatos de cada álbum: .M4a + .mp3 (temas adicionales de Killer Tracks) + .WAV (sin compresión). En la version .M4a llegue hasta el dia 02/02/16 al album n°160. En .wav escuche al n°24. Obviamente hay que revisar varias veces para confirmar que el CD quedo perfectamente grabado.

A tener en cuenta que Spotify, Deezer y la ya extinta Rdio tienen el catalogo mezclado, sin informar quienes son los autores y en que año y numero de disco pertenecieron originalmente. La versión que se puede encontrar fácilmente en linea no incluyen ninguno de los temas adicionales, por ejemplo, si el álbum “011 – After School Rock! (Up Tempo) (1981)” (sip, otra vez lo uso de ejemplo) contiene 6 temas, en el vinilo original o Killer Tracks tiene 30 temas, la diferencia es que se incluye aparte del tema central, los temas de 1 minuto, de 30 segundos, uno con el final y otra pista con instrumentos de fondo, un total de 41 minutos contra los 17 para la versión “estándar”.

Para crear este catalogo me guié por un listado en .TXT que me envió un amigo por mail hace unos años, el tuvo los primeros 94 álbumes y transcribió el texto de los CDs originales, ese mismo texto también se encuentra disponible en el sitio Killer Tracks.

Para saber el año se tiene que ver las propiedades del MP3 bajados del reproductor del sitio ya que no figura en la publicacion cuando fue publicado.

rollercoaster año

Excelente papel tapiz que estoy usando hace un par de años, aunque siempre me pregunte porque sale el logo de la cerveza Duff y aparece Bart en vez de Homero. :v

Para saber el numero de album se ve a simple vista en el borde de la caratula y en el titulo (NM011).

Esto se inicio a mediados de 1995 con las primeras grabaciones en casete de audio (por parte de un amigo de la familia que trabajo en un canal) y años después me entero “gracias” a que Youtube me dio un aviso de copyright y dio el titulo exacto de un tema que buscaba desde 1996.

reclamo

El album NM072_01 de refiere a “072 – Jock Jams (Up Tempo) (1988)”, el tema n°1 “Overdrive” fue compuesto por M Peed. “Supreme Challenger” es del album “149 – Athletic Achievement (Industrial) (1996), es el tema 5 y compuesta por Craig Palmer. Raro que no salieron mas de 50 notificaciones, todo este promocional lo sacaron de albumes de 1991 a 1996. Universal es el propietario actual de Killer Tracks y su subsidiaria Network Music.

Cada álbum tiene un genero musical diferente, por ejemplo:

  • Slow tempo: Temas lentos.
  • Medium Tempo: Temas de velocidad media.
  • Up Tempo: Temas de velocidad alta.
  • Industrial: Temas con temática industrial, no confundir con el genero Industrial.
  • Specialty: Álbumes con una temática en especifico, ya sea Música Country, Los Juegos Olímpicos, música de espectáculos, de países. Pueden ser composiciones propias emulando un estilo o interpretaciones de piezas clasicas.
categoria

Para que sea mas facil encontrar un album especifico se agrego la categoria año y “Network Music” y las etiquetas del Año, nombres de compositores y genero musical.

Y bueno, la primera parte del catalogo: Si hay errores (que es muy probable) serán corregidos en la semana. Al ser un “Index”, cada nuevo álbum agregado sera vinculado desde este articulo, es muy posible que los artículos viejos vayan a ser ampliados y corregidos.

Imagen

Asi eran las ediciones originales en EP, fabricados en Japon bajo el sello Whisperdisc. Años despues se re-editaron en CD y actualmente se puede comprar o escuchar en formato digital. (Imagen del EP de una publicacion en EBAY)

Spotify o cualquier sitio de streaming no agregan ningun dato sobre los albumes, numero, compositores y año, nada mas tiene el titulo e interprete de fantasia llamado “Network Music Ensemble”.

La idea de este catalogo es describir lo que falta y de paso simplificar la tarea de organizar mis colecciones.

Este es un resumen de como se organizara los albumes: Tomo por ejemplo uno de mis favoritos, el N°11.

  1. Titulo del álbum (After School Rock)
  2. Numero del álbum (NM011)
  3. Estilo de música (Up Tempo)
  4. Año (1981)
  5. Compositores (C Palmer, L Owens…)
  6. Titulo de los tracks (Rollercoaster)
  7. Descripciones de las canciones (A whimsical, carnival/amusement park atmosphere is created by the lively sounds of a calliope)
  8. Descripción de la editora/Copyright (Network Production Music Publishing [BMI])
  9. Y la caratula de la edicion, posiblemente sea de la version Digital o CD.
