The world feeds on different types of celebrities. Someone like George Clooney, for example, would cause mass euphoria if he arrived at Lisbon Airport. Michael Fremer, however, would no doubt walk out the door without anyone recognising him. That's a real shame, as hundreds of people would miss out on the chance to exchange a few words with the most prestigious audio critic in the world.
On March 26, this American, the musical supervisor of TRON, the first film in history to contain computer-generated scenes, and who has been a radio presenter, stand-up comedian and is the most famous columnist of Stereophile magazine, is coming to Portugal for the first time, by invitation of Imac?stica. This is the man we can thank for bringing the vinyl back on to the market en force and his status in the audiophile world is easily backed up: some members of the American media will be in Portugal to cover Michael Fremer's trip to our country.
The American critic will be accompanied by Irving Gross, the commercial director of Constellation who will be presenting Inspiration, the new line of amplifiers and preamplifiers for the first time in Portugal. The product has delighted experts the world over, including Jorge Goncalves, the director of Audio, the most famous national magazine dedicated to the subject, who in 20 years hadn't heard anything that would make him replace his own system. The Inspiration products will be playing at the Imac?stica auditoriums in Lisbon and will certainly make the new Magico M-Projects shine, the other big arrival in this rich month of March for those who appreciate high-quality music. In fact, five days before Michael Fremer and Irving Gross land in Lisbon, Alan Wolf, the industrial designer behind the magic of the Magico speakers, will present his latest creation in the capital. M-Project is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Magico and they are limited to 50 pairs worldwide. Only one will come to Portugal, so if you want to hear the world's best amplifiers alongside the best speakers, and speak to the people who created them, the best bet is to follow Essential Lisboa's advice and drop in to Imac?stica. And if you're lost for words, don't worry; Michael Fremer is there to help you.
