We all thought that this was pretty interesting… McIntosh provided the audio experience for the opening of Stevie Nicks’ 24 Karat Stevie_Nicks_-_1977Gold photography exhibition at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, New York, in October. The opening event showcased Stevie’s 24 Karat Gold exhibition: a photographic journey into the private world of the rock legend, through previously unseen self-portraits from her personal Polaroid collection, taken between 1975 and 1987.

From the mid-seventies, Stevie Nicks used her Polaroid camera to capture a number of self- portraits both at home and on tour around the world. The exhibition, which ran up until the 31st of October, shares the same name as her new solo album: 24 Karat Gold – Songs From The Vault. It was during the recording of 24 Karat Gold earlier in 2014, that Stevie decided to share her unseen self-portraits, each of which is individually signed and numbered.

Stevie said: “Some people don’t sleep at night — I am one of those people. These pictures were taken long after everyone had gone to bed. I would begin after midnight and go until four or five in the morning. I stopped at sunrise like a vampire! I never really thought anyone would ever see these pictures — they went into shoeboxes, where they remained. I did everything: I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture-mover, the lighting director. It was my joy: I was the model.”

The exhibit was curated by rock legend Dave Stewart with guests enjoying Stevie’s new album, 24 Karat Gold – Songs From The Vault, through a McIntosh system comprising: MC1.2KW mono power amplifiers; a C50 preamp; MCD1100 CD player; MT5 turntable; a MEN220 room-correction system and XRT1K speakers.
