about

Sound is but an echo of something against nothing. ~ Singal Rinpoche

'Transmission of Sparks' is a live solo percussion performance. These sounds echo against a cloudless sky and reverberate in our minds. Recorded in the sacred hollows of a resonant church sanctuary, they give us a glimpse of what vibrations can be when they are allowed to echo against brick and stone surfaces. There are no added effects or sonic wizardry added to this recording. It's just 2 mics and the room. Immerse yourself in the deep end of the pool. ~ MB

This is Edition #8 of the Threshold Series. For best results, play it often.

Note: the recording has very little compression on it, thus the quiet sounds are quiet, and the loud sounds are loud. Adjust your system's volume accordingly. Headphones are recommended.
