Só que antes disso, eu quero que vocês aplaudam o técnico de som. Ele faz o máximo que pode ser feito pela tecnologia, o técnico de som, aplaude esse gênio! Martin.
One more thing: I want you to applaud for the sound engineer. He is just doing the maximum that can be achieved with technology. The sound engineer – give a big hand for this genius! Martin

O Martin gosta tanto de música, que ele fica tão maluco escutando a música, que parece que ele tá tocando aqui com a gente. Sensacional!!!
Martin likes music so much, and while listening, he is so entirely present, as if he was here on stage, playing with us. Sensational!!!

Karl Ivar Refseth Trio – Recording the Album „Amen“ in Norwegian Churches
4. Januar 2014

Karl Ivar Refseth and I loved the idea of recording his music in a wooden church in Norway.  To make the sound and the sonic picture as natural and deep as possible, and to introduce the expression of movement to the saxophone, the recording was made by using one-point stereophony. Known for their warmth and spectacular stereo imaging, two Royer R122 ribbon microphones were used in the figure of Bluemlein.

I am very proud of the sonic result and I am looking forward to the release of this beautiful album.
