"Echoes of Aphex Twin, Nils Frahm, Arvo Pärt and Biosphere swirl around a deeply personal but sonically seductive piece of work."
- MOJO

"... the most ambitious work of his career, tackling social and historical injustices of the past ... he wants to tell a story with specific historical context within electronic music, which is an inherently difficult task ... Bratten is resourceful at assembling whatever sounds or styles needed to fit the need of the moment ... an expertly produced, emotionally honest record that defies genre and expectation. To understand that requires no homework."
- Pitchfork

Norway's André Bratten recorded Gode between 2012 and 2015 in Oslo, citing artists like Giacinto Scelsi, Arvo Pärt, Gescom/AE, Brian Eno and Norwegian compatriot Biosphere as inspiration. Like a stark black and white film, the album is a meditation on the darker days of Norway’s past, before the country discovered its oil wealth. From 1900 to 1939 it was one of Europe’s poorest countries, beset by illness and starvation. Only the privileged could afford to make art and music. Bratten gave free rein to his imagination and further deepened his unique compositional practice: while his previous work was based on synthesizers, drum machines and computers, Gode was made using tape machines, layered with field recordings, heavily modified piano, string arrangements and even vocals.

"Gode is a personal album. It's the album I have always wanted to make."
- André Bratten

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
