"Theo Bleckmann's voice is an instrument nonpareil ... (he) often uses wordless vocals to create luminous webs of sound ... he sings airy tones that evoke medieval chant, Bachlike chorale, Ivesian folk and minimalist drift."
- JazzTimes.com

Origami from Theo Bleckmann explores the unsuspected emotional and expressive possibilities of the voice in an unfettered group context. It is a meticulously constructed, exquisitely detailed collection of songs that ranges across centuries, continents and musical styles for its inspiration. Origami, the ancient Japanese art of paper folding, provides a metaphor for how the music takes shape and enfolds the listener. Bleckmann, a singer with a three and a half octave range, creates lush environments through overdubbing and live electronic layering, embedding the often wordless vocals in diverse rhythms and textures. Shifting from song to sound and from composition to improvisation, he displays a mercurial aesthetic that encompasses (at least) jazz, folk, minimalism, ambient, noise and free improv.

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!
