our evaluation rules
how we rate the tunes: the art of A&Ring

When browsing through our alpha or beta list you might contemplate on how all those tunes made it to the lists. You might raise the question: why exactly these pieces? Why not more of Tiesto or Paul van Dyk or ...?!

Of course: all your questions are justified! Just as everyone got her / his own taste so we won't claim we constructed the non-plus-ultra list. We are sure that we are not able to please all needs and preferences.

Instead, when creating the lists step-by-step we try to implement, to stick to something we call quasi-objective evaluation rules when listening to new tunes or doing pre-selections of potential alpha or beta list candidates.

So, this section is very closely connected with the (our) definition of a quasi-objectivity in trance music. But before we start, we have to stipulate that we don't insist to manipulate the course of things and the subjectiveness of every cognitive system.

A little theory is necessary to receive a reasonable and understandable approach into the difficult world of A&R’ing, meaning the ’art’ of listening, evaluating and selecting tunes from the scene’s massive output.

more soon ... you can look forward to gain a deeper insights into the evaluation and selection work and the maintenance of the project’s core: the alpha and beta lists!! make sure to check back regularly. For the topics to come see beneath:

1. a lesson in constructivism

2. hh’s quasi-objectivity approach (HH.QOA)

3. trance production and recording standards

4. the question of style

5. the fashion factor / trend indicator

tech news: abc links problem fixed!
the abc quick links at the top of the a-list and the [ top ] links there are functional again. However, it takes some more time to repair other section's [ top ] links and anchors. This is due to the SEO works (header modification for ext. access). Please scroll instead and still avoid using the quick and cross links mentioned above. Thanks!

The char errors on the newentries page ("\" preceding special chars like """ and "") are fixed.
