TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik and Bob Weir recently partnered for a private performance and audio workshop at TRI Studios (Tamalpais Research Institute). Rdio will eventually have access to all exclusive recordings from TRI Studios - and will be streaming them at a higher, better quality. This is all part of a greater initiative launched by TRI Studios, Rdio and Bob Weir dubbed "Musicians for Audio Quality" — to shed awareness on the importance of audio quality, the future of music and industry standards. Recorded in hi-resolution audio, the special performance exclusively utilized TELEFUNKEN microphones and featured musicians from the Grateful Dead inspired family of bands, including Furthur, Ratdog, Box Set, The Fall Risk, Sovoso, and The Sunshine Garcia Band.
