Before boarding my flight back to Hong Kong (Is there a bigger contrast than small college town-Ohio and neon-clad Asian supercity?), I have time to report that the Albany Records recording session was an excellent experience, and it was a pleasure to work with some of the best in the business during our intensive week of rehearsals and recordings. I am very much forward to the next stages of making this CD come to life and confident that the final product—musically and sonically—will be something we can all be proud of. I would like to thank all my musicians—soprano Tony Arnold, conductor Tim Weiss, and the members of Zohn Collective—for their time and talents in making this week possible. Great thanks are also due to recording engineer Paul Eachus and the entire staff in recording services at Oberlin for their incredible ears and for making the process run smoothly from start to finish. “And that’s a wrap!”

Now on to dim sum.
