Smoke & Mirrors: Vanish

Smoke & Mirrors takes us on many different “trips” as we journey through this album.  These are refreshingly fully-developed works, each very different from the others, each with its own story. Yet as a whole, this selection of music illustrates the breadth of contemporary classical music written for percussionists, as well as the flexibility and virtuosity of Smoke & Mirrors. World class and sophisticated as this ensemble is, these musicians retain and communicate the sheer joy I experienced when banging pots and pans as a two- and three-year old. Do you remember your own pleasure making a racket as a kid? Smoke & Mirrors: Katalin La Favre, Jessica Cameron, Joe Beribak, Edward Hong and Derek Tywoniuk have never forgotten it.

Gear used

We chose a single stereo AKG C24 microphone for these tracks. Jon Fisher from Gearworks Pro Audio loaned us these precious microphones. Elliot Midwood designed our microphone preamplification equipment and we recorded directly to RMGI 468 tape for what Yarlung releases as “The SonoruS Series.”  Mastering by Steve Hoffman. Bernie Grundman cut our lacquers for vinyl release.

We used the Hapi converter and Pyramix software from Merging Technologies in Switzerland to make these transfers to DSD.  Our sincere thanks to George Klissarov and exaSound for making these releases possible.

Press reviews

The Absolute Sound

Vanish is the engaging and highly innovative follow-up to Yarlung’s original and equally compelling Smoke & Mirrors release.  Presenting a wide tapestry of rhythms and harmonics skillfully arrayed across a broad and deep soundstage.

There’s an immediacy, clarity, and transparency to this modern classical percussion recording that seemingly brings the performers to your living room.
