Dynamic Dimensions - Henri Rene

Punctuated Performance
Dynamic Dimensions
Henri Rene And His Orchestra
Produced By Herman Diaz, Jr.
Stereo Action - The Sound Your Eyes Can Follow
RCA LSA-2396
1961

Traditional solid late 50s sounding mood from Rene augmented with ping-pong effects borrowed from stereo effects inventions by Enoch Light (Command). Additionally, there are a number of more creative tracks on the set and, by-way-of-sample, the cool tune featuring a driving bass line, Punctuated Performance.

From the inside sleeve: Not only is this the first Stereo Action album for Henri Rene, but it is also the first Stereo Action project recorded in RCA Victor's newest and most up-to-date recording studio: Studio C in New York City. This is truly a Stereo Action studio in the most literal sense. Certainly, no recording studio in the world can more fully handle the technical needs of RCA's new sound-in-motion recording technique. Right at his finger tips, engineer Bob Simpson has full control of a massive three-track mixing panel, containing twelve microphone inputs that can be switched into any channel of the Ampex 300-3 three channel tape recorders at will. An additional fourth channel is incorporated into the mixing console to handle the unique sound-in-motion, moving pickup of Stereo Action. "C" can accommodate, within its physical environment, any spatial requirement call for by the arranger.
