Release Date:09/25/2015;Notes:"Yarlung Records newly recorded and released Smoke & Mirrors walked away with this year's top prize! _x000D_ "... This recording's huge dynamic range (this is not a piece for the weak willed amplifier), instrumental colors and especially cornucopia of percussion instruments including bass drum... will give even a thoroughbred audio system everything it can handle and even a bit more."_x000D_ -Myles Astor_x000D_ _x000D_ Here's a relatively new label dedicated to recording young and established concert artists with minimalist recording techniques using vacuum tube microphones recorded directly to two tracks. [Smoke & Mirrors Percussion Ensemble presents] 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._x000D_ -Jim Hannon, Publisher & Senior Writer, The Absolute Sound_x000D_ _x000D_ Smoke & Mirrors takes us on many journeys in this album. These are refreshingly fully-developed works, each very different from the others, each with it's own story. As a whole, these pieces illustrate the breadth of contemporary classical music written for percussionists, as well as the flexibility and virtuosity of Smoke & Mirrors. We recorded each piece live to tape with no editing, to create the most lifelike performance possible. Take heart in Smoke & Mirrors, who actually play this way (and this well) in real life.;Track List:1. Udacrep Akubrad;2. Juego de Relojes;3. Watch Me Vanish Watch Me?;4. Happenstance;5. Sonatine
