Come hear "You Can't Do That: A Beatles Remix Project"

Hendrix professor Daniel Whelan teaches politics by day, but by night, he's spent a lot of time over the last several years meticulously remixing the Beatles catalog, with an eye (and an ear) to technological advances in sound engineering, specifically in the area of stereo recording. As the authors of this week's arts and entertainment feature, James Szenher and JT Tarpley, say:

Instead of reimagining Beatles songs, Whelan works at a more fundamental level, changing the volume and tonal levels of instrumental and vocal tracks, and sometimes outright reinserting takes that had been vetoed. ...Listening to Whelan's remixes, you get a much more evenly distributed stereo sound, and you can hear — and often, even tactilely feel the difference, as if you're more enveloped by the individual instruments and vocal lines.
Tonight, Arkansas Times presents a happy hour listening party at The Joint in North Little Rock's Argenta District in which Whelan spins a sampling of those re-engineered tracks, including songs recovered from the lost Beatles album, "Get Back," 5:30 p.m., free admission.
