A Composition as a Tribute to the Specific "G-sharp" Musical Note Created When Toasting With LOUIS XIII Glasses. A Melody With Just One Note Offering Many Dimensions and Complexity Just Like One Single Drop of LOUIS XIII Cognac.
PARIS, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- ONE NOTE PRELUDE composition is a pioneering project that brings together a renowned Jazz composer and advanced robotics to create a performance. When two LOUIS XIII cognac glasses are clinked together to make a toast, they produce a very specific sound – a clear, extended G-sharp note. ONE NOTE PRELUDE composition explores the multi-faceted nature of this distinctive sound with a specially commissioned piece of music written by the Paris-based Israeli pianist Yaron Herman, who composed a one-note symphony using only G-sharp.
"The symphony has a complex simplicity. It's just one note, but with many dimensions. The idea that one note, like one drop of LOUIS XIII, can evolve over time and reveal itself was something that I found fascinating," says Yaron Herman.
One note, as a drop, offering many dimensions and revelations
The one-of-a-kind piece written by Yaron Herman begins with a single piano note, which cleverly draws you in. The piano is then joined by a string quartet playing the same note, but at different octaves and using contrasting rhythms, the individual instruments adding texture, structure and harmony to the composition. A violin provides the main melody, while a second violin and a viola add colour and harmony. A cello adds a rhythmic bass line, bringing structure to the melody, which rises to a crescendo. Always thinking a century ahead.
The pair of specially choreographed robotic arms come together, in time with the music, to make a unique toast with two LOUIS XIII cognac glasses. The robots are going to give precisely the right angle and the right speed to get the G-Sharp sound. "ONE NOTE PRELUDE composition not only pays tribute to this musical note. It also expresses the complexity of one single note, as an echo to the tasting of one drop of LOUIS XIII Cognac, which lasts for up to one hour on the palate," says Ludovic du Plessis LOUIS XIII Global Executive Director.
As of April 2020, the unique robots' arms will be displayed in the LOUIS XIII Boutiques and then will travel the world.

Crafted using irreplaceable whiskies from long-closed 'ghost' distilleries
LONDON, July 8, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- "Shining a light on this hidden treasure of the whisky world is something we've wanted to do for some time. This indulgent new limited edition provides us with a wonderful opportunity to explore the remarkable layers of rich fruit found in every drop of Johnnie Walker Blue Label," said Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge.
Today, Johnnie Walker announces the release of Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal, the third in the series of special releases crafted using irreplaceable "ghost" whiskies from a small number of iconic distilleries that closed many years ago. Jim has long been passionate about exploring the unique flavours found in these exceptionally rare whiskies from the Johnnie Walker Blue Label reserves.
At the heart of this whisky lies the Highland single malt Glenury Royal, from the distillery of the same name that shut its doors in 1985. Its colourful history is as exceptional as its uniquely rich and fruity whiskies.
Founded in 1825 by Captain Robert Barclay - a Member of the British Parliament and the first man to walk one thousand miles in one thousand hours - the distillery was destroyed by a devastating fire only to rise like a phoenix from the flames to thrive once again. Under Barclay's tenacious leadership, it flourished to become one of only three Scottish distilleries to enjoy a royal title. Today the rare spirit of Captain Barclay lives on in the dwindling stocks of this incredible "ghost" whisky.
Jim added: "We have waited patiently for that moment when we turn our thoughts to this exceptionally rare whisky, carefully watching over our maturing casks until the time was right to explore its uniquely indulgent character."
Jim and his team also hand-selected two exceptionally rare whiskies from the "ghost" distilleries of Cambus and Pittyvaich, perfectly balancing their creamy toffee and butterscotch notes with the sumptuous orchard fruits, sweet apple and delicate apricot character of Glenury Royal.
Five other rare whiskies from Glen Elgin, Inchgower, Glenlossie, Cameronbridge and Glenkinchie bring waves of vanilla, heather honey and dried fruits that weave through smooth dark chocolate and nutty layers to create an exploration of this irreplaceable 'ghost' whisky - making this limited edition our most indulgent yet.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal is bottled at an ABV of 43.8% and is available globally from October 2019 with an RRSP of 275 GBP for a 70cl bottle. Each bottle in this special release is individually numbered.
