"Next to images of musicians in their natural habitats, you'll find universal advice and new approaches to making art that might spark ideas for your own creative process--even if you're not musically inclined. It's an encouraging companion you'll want to keep handy for the long winter ahead." - HERE "In a time when we're all being advised to stay at home, Mirror Sound offers an uplifting view of just how creatively satisfying one's home can be." - DP Review "This lush coffee table book is filled with insights from the likes of Sharon Van Etten, Suzanne Ciani, the late Emitt Rhodes, Mac DeMarco, Tune-Yards and nearly 25 others. While there's plenty of gear-packed studio shots to pore over, the book takes more of a philosophical bent as it explores why people self-record and the give-and-take of the process." - Pro Sound Network
