It’s been revealed that high-end Japanese speaker brand Eclipse was the choice of two-time Grammy-nominated saxophonist Amy Dickson, for the launch of GVIDO, an innovative electronic music score/sheet system, held at Abbey Road Studios. Four Eclipse TD712z mk2 speakers were used for the event, held in May,

Dickson performed New York Counterpoint by American composer Steve Reich, who pioneered minimal music in the Sixties. The piece, originally arranged for 11 clarinets, was arranged for saxophones; it’s commonly played with a backing track featuring the other 10 parts recorded in advance. A task taken on by the Eclipse speakers.

“The sound of Eclipse is surprisingly clear, real and full-sounding,” noted Dickson. “It was a real pleasure to play with sound coming from this speaker." The TD712z MK2 retail from £6,500 per pair.
