“Water Pushes Sand is an admirable feat and should be considered a meaningful step towards unpacking the possibilities that exist in Asian-Australian orchestral collaboration. The work shows us that there is no shortage of fodder for artistic creation between China and Australia, with each of the musicians featured exhibiting a high-quality of musical mastery and maturity in performance and improvisation.”
- Nithya Iyer, Peril Magazine

Drawing heavily on influences from the Art Ensemble of Chicago, The Australian Art Orchestra (AAO) was founded in 1994 with a commitment to exploring the meeting points between disciplines and cultures through the wonder of improvisation. Water Pushes Sand is one of the orchestra's most striking works, integrating elements of contemporary jazz and the traditional melodies, rhythms and cacophonous operatic style of Sichaun, China. Composer Erik Griswold concludes 15 years of research with this work, tapping five of the southern Chinese city's all-star musicians to join five members of the AAO for a colourful collage of winds, piano and percussion.

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!
