Commenting on his choice of microphones, Zhang says: “Phua Ee Kia has a uniquely expressive and dynamic voice, therefore the d:facto Vocal Microphone’s high SPL handling and wide dynamic range ensured that his performance was not constrained by technical limitations, even in the slightest.
“For the instruments, the impressive clarity of the d:vote™ Instrument Microphone
was a major advantage – as was its flexibility. This minuscule gooseneck mic can be mounted conveniently on top of clips that come in various shapes and sizes. Even for an instrument as unconventional as the Sheng, the d:vote™ 4099 manages to provide a solution that allows fluid on-stage movement of the musician, so that he is able to fully express his artistry.”
