Introducing AUDIODEFINE, A new project by WordMean Organisation



AudioDefine is the new independent record label by the WordMean Organisation that will strive to promote high definition audio and music content and will begin publishing bands that it ‘signs’ to its record label shortly.

What will make things different is that we won’t “sign” an artist so-to-speak, but give them the freedom and non-exclusivity to share their music with other record labels and commercial businesses.

AudioDefine will also be releasing a high definition and pristine quality series PURE MASTER SERIES™ that will go beyond modern remasters (which mostly just compress the audio and re-release it).
Our first release in this series will be MAGNUM OPUS: A SELECTION OF THE GREATEST CLASSICAL PIECES FROM 1725 TO 1901 which has been recorded, Mixed and Mastered with the pure superiority these pieces deserve in spectacular 24-bit quality.

With more to be revealed in the coming months, we invite you to visit AD.wordmean.org

[PUBLISHING] Announcing "A GENERAL HISTORY OF THE PIRATES"

We are incredibly excited to finally be able to announce a project that has occupied many months here at WordMean Publishing. The all new, amended and  revised "A General History of the Pirates" which covered the earliest and most reliable biographical accounts of Blackbeard, Charles Vane, Jack Rackham and Bartholomew Roberts (to name just a few)

It's the most influential work in its field and it has helped shape our knowledge of piracy and the popular culture that has stemmed from the Golden Age. 
Though the original work is in the public domain and freely available, it's a difficult piece of work to read with several formatting issues and complicated almost biblical old-English spelling and grammar,  we have dissected the original first edition and resurrected the book for today's enthusiasts.

With additional galleries, historical records, archaeological discoveries and more: the new book will expand the old for the 21st century.

We also have plans to release the book in large print and will be offering discounts for educational institutions.
 
 First published in the 1700’s and documenting the most important biographies ever to inspire the outlooks of The Golden Age of Piracy, Captain Charles Johnson’s A GENERAL HISTORY OF THE PIRATES remains the most significant work in piracy research.

The 17th-century early-modern English text has been reproduced in an easier-to-read way – though still completely accurate and true to the original – with extra galleries and information as well as additional content like sea shanties and historical discoveries.

Reconstructed from our first edition copy; we’ve paid attention to the detail and restructured the book the way it deserves to be. This is one of the most important pieces of non-fiction to have ever graced the Earth – and we wanted to resurrect it!

Though attributed to a mysterious author known as Captain Charles Johnson, A GENERAL HISTORY carries its own cunningness with the author often attributed as a potential pseudonym of Robinson Crusoe writer Daniel Defoe.
