“It’s the meditative richness of the music – its compelling sense of endangered cultures and the quiet intensity of its feelings – that gives this work its character … Shepik (is) among the most articulate and quickest-witted of guitarists …”

Human Activity Suite: Sounding a Response to Climate Change is a personal statement from guitarist Brad Shepik about his concern for our future. Shepik conceived the material on this 2009 album for his trio plus trumpet and bass, an expanded lineup offering a palette to develop music that would take the listener on a journey around the globe and focus on how these issues affect us as people living on the earth. The concept was to write a piece for each of the seven continents as well as other pieces about factors and effects of climate change. The suite moves beyond its programmatic framework, however, to embrace Shepik's vision of a musical world without borders.The result, enhanced by audiophile production, is a recording whose beauty, variety, humour and broad stylistic reach is one artist’s appeal to engage in global thinking and living.

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!
