Chasing The Dragon have chosen Mendelssohn's wonderful "OCTET IN E FLAT MAJOR, OP. 20" performed by The Locrian Ensemble for their latest recording. The musicians are all soloists in their own right; however, they are led by the ubiquitous violinist, Jack Liebeck. The recording has given Chasing The Dragon the opportunity to compare a variety of microphone techniques, which they do in the second half of the album. You can compare valve vs transistor mics and the sound of analogue 1/2" master tape running at 30 IPS vs digital at 24 / 192, all recorded at the same time. They have even used their binaural head - which sounds great on headphones! Contains 10 tracks on Compact Disc.
