Chicago area - Dinner with Halo

I'm inviting those who can come to have dinner with our own Victor (HALO) tomorrow (Monday, June 18th).

Probably at the Laredo Rosemont at 9797 W. Higgins. We haven't got a time nailed down yet.

Give me a shout via PM if you think you can make it.

    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    Too short notice. Have fun guys!

    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass
