Lively and authoritative playing by violinist Patrick Yim and pianist Kiu Tung Poon.
Review on The Strad
The Strad, November 2022 Issue
The disc’s highlight is the piece that gives it its title, by Nathan’s brother Sebastian: his accompanying sound samples act like an enormous piano sustaining pedal, amplifying, transforming and even sometimes prefiguring the sounds produced by Yim and pianist Kiu Tung Poon, who’s an effective presence throughout.

Review on "Reviews Online" of the International Association of Theater Critics (Hong Kong)
Poon Kiu Tung's ingenious and refreshing piano lines, with rich and full sonority, filled the space between two strings instruments.... Without excessive emotional fluctuation, the trio followed the flow of music, carried out musical lines with purity, clarity, and colors, delivered an excellent performance, which was a brilliant interpretative choice. Their collaboration and interpretation of this French work is beautiful and impeccable, absolutely convincing.

Review on Woodstock Times
Ms. Poon displayed lyricism and virtuosity in a varied program of Impressionist and contemporary American and Chinese music. The highlights of the afternoon were Maurice Ravel's "Le Tombeau de Couperin" and George Tsontakis' "Sarabesque". Ms. Poon's playing was lyrical and emotionally nuanced, from forceful or even desperate to dreamy, joyful or passionate, with tone ranging from percussive to bell- or even bird-like. In Zhou Long's interesting "Pianogongs", she played Chinese gongs as well as experimental and conventional piano sounds.
