American experimental musician Bill Baird releases his second project of 2016 with Summer Is Gone, following the double album Earth Into Aether. Recorded mostly at Abbey Road Studios over two sessions, Summer Is Gone is a meditation on time, memory and the brief moment we inhabit the Earth. Relevant to this theme, a website was created that will cycle through unique sequences on the record for the next 150 billion years or so. This was achieved by making 250 separate mixes of the album's 10 tracks. Every time a user logs on, a unique sequence is generated based on time and location. The album's closing track is the sound of a newborn child crying, recorded at Zabrieskie Point in Death Valley. This sound was then duplicated 107 billion times, which is the approximate number of humans who have ever existed on the planet, according to numerous sources.

"... it's Baroque symphonic pop, ambient clouds and sound collage."

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!
