This recording was made with all-tube electronics designed and built by Sheffield Lab. A single-point stereo microphone was used to achieve a natural acoustic perspective. This technique, requiring a musical performance that is naturally balanced to the ear, allows us to capture the full wealth of ambient information, the physical placement of the musicians, as well as the depth and spaciousness of the recording hall. All of the Sheffield Lab classical recordings have used this single-point microphone technique; however, this is the first time we have used this method on a recording of contemporary music. ---DOUG SAX
