Nashville’s Blue Grotto.

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – JULY 2011: In science fiction stories, the world is often populated by secret wormholes – magical confluences in space and time that can transport people to other planes of existence. Such wormholes provide a nice analogy to the proprietary PhantomFocusTM System monitor tuning protocol of acoustician, studio designer, and all-around sonic sorcerer Carl Tatz. Tatz’ ingenious tuning system, which is a multi-dimensional mixture of hardware, knowledge, and application, can deliver “the sweet spot from God” in any studio control room, from the newest multi-million dollar mega-studio to the humblest of bedroom arrangements. Recently, two of Tatz’ PhantomFocus System installations earned Mix Magazine’s “Class of 2011″ Studio Design Awards. Like most PhantomFocus System installations, Carl Tatz relies on an Ashly Audio signal processor engine to deliver a perfectly tuned sweet spot, which more

Translated literally as “Saucer,” the forty year-old building bears an uncanny resemblance to a tilted UFO in flight. Everything about Spodek serves as an honorable foundation to the cultural touchstones of entertainment and sports that find an audience there daily. Every major musical act that tours through Poland is sure to play Spodek, and the arena hosts a range of athletic events, including the recent 2009 EuroBasket championship. At that more
