"I don’t think I’ve ever heard an album so given over to silence. In a sense, this album is an acknowledgment of the ultimate power of silence over music. Listeners wedded to form and structure and momentum will probably find “Northern Song” unsettling, even exasperating. Those who can allow themselves to be transported in the few moments a struck chord endures against the power of silence should find it captivating." – Stereo Review

Tibbetts is well-known to a nation­wide cult, so it seems only right for him to emerge’ on the atmospheric jazz label ECM where he is joined by percussionist Marc Anderson on strictly acoustic voyages through mind-space. There is nothing in this music (with titles such as “The Big Wind,” and “Walking”) to hang any defining label on. It has overtones of classical, jazz, rock and Martian style but mostly it is just an extreme pleasure for the senses. Approach with an open mind." - Larry Kelp (Oakland Tribune)

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!
