*Venue: Best possible in the world, imo. The Neurosciences Institute Auditorium in La Jolla - NSI. Built to study the effects of music on the human brain. It is a musically friendly anechoic chamber.
This place is just incredible beyond words. It is a concrete shell within a concrete shell, buried within a deep berm of soil around its exposed side. The rest is buried within a massive monolithic concrete laboratory structure that is built into a hillside, as almost a retaining wall. Its a structure that will survive the Zombie Apocalypse, and still sound great.

Where to start,…
First run with my brand new DPA 4060 pair.
I sat next to one of the soloists of other concerts in this festival series.
During the second set, an extremely wealthy patroness came over to me and asked if I’d like to trade my seat, which was off center, to hers, which was the best seat in the house; I know, no one else has recorded more in this hall than myself. She wanted to sit next to her friend. Great seat, but, my new seat mate was a bit fidgety.

I give you the Mainly Mozart Festival Orchestra under the stick of David Atherton, on this friday night in June 11, 2004
I do hope you’ll enjoy!

The venue,...
In this animated image, the venue is the rectangular structure at the center, that is surrounded by the rounded form to its right.
THe rounded form is a dirt berm that surrounds the exposed side of the venue. The rest of the venue is at the center of a massive concrete monolith bunker-like laboratory structure that is also buried within a hillside, and acts as retaining structure.
The venue is a concrete shell within a concrete shell, that is buried below soil. You enter and immediately and steeply enter into earth insulating.
The venues mechanical and air conditiong system is to the lower left of the venue, and within its own walled-off area.

The entrance vestibule is the large black square area, ^. To its left is the surrounding dirt berm, nearing 20' deep.

The inside of the venue...

No two surfaces are parallel to eliminate reverberations. It is a musically friendly anechoic chamber.

OK,... what we have here is one of the coolest things that I've ever recorded; The Musical Saw.
Yep, a musical saw; a carpenters saw, played with a violin bow. And it is so totally cool sounding.
