Smoke & Mirrors takes us on a journey of the breadth of contemporary classical music written for percussionists. The recording was captured using a single AKG C 24 stereo microphone in the glorious acoustics of Zipper Hall in Los Angeles. Each piece was recorded live to tape with no editing to create a lifelike performance.

In the age of compressed digital downloads, it is refreshing to hear real sound and real music again, reminiscent of RCA Living Stereo in its golden age, or Mercury Records at its height. Yarlung's sound is liquid and transparent, just as if you were sitting in the concert halls with superb acoustics, where these recordings are made.

Simply a gorgeous and hypnotic recording. My copy is dead silent. Interestingly, one can prolong the listening experience by playing it at 33rpm instead of 45rpm... It sounds lovely either way.

Impressive but too noisy

Very nice performance, very dynamic and full of fine timbre! Surface or other noise too pronounced nothing I would have expected from such a modern analogue recording.
