The Music of Erich Zann is a startling and surreal musical interpretation of H.P. Lovecraft’s 1922 tale of the eponymous violist, a mysterious old man who seemingly protects himself from dark, magical forces by playing the viol. American composer Michael J. Evans is a gifted melodist who is known for his use of the rich textures and harmonic language of late European Romanticism. On this work, however, he departs from these tendencies to an extent in order to convey a clear, taut and compelling narrative that captures the mysticism and drama of Lovecraft’s story. Evans adds electronic delay to the Sirius Quartet's performance, the most extreme in his palette of evocative and exotic sounds which also includes glissandi, harmonics and, most powerfully, a variety of sophisticated rhythmic textures that suggest the paranormal characteristics of Lovecraft’s boarding house.

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!
