Linear Obsessional is delighted to release this exciting collaboration between the great British maverick slide guitarist Mike Cooper and the Chinese Sheng virtuoso Yan-Chiu Leung.
“We had never met each other before this concert. We had exchanged a few mp3s to give each other an idea of what musical oceans we both float in and then attempted to navigate our way together by free improvisation toward some distant shore. I think we arrived at a beautiful island together finally. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Many special thanx to Yang Yeung, Alice Wong, Yuk Mui Law, Edwin Lo and to everyone who came on the Lamma Island soundwalk”
-Mike Cooper July 2013
