Steve Tibbetts’ experimental guitar collides with Marc Anderson’s percussion, Marcus Wise’s tabla, kalimba, and pianolin, Michelle Kinney on cello, steel drum and other percussion instruments, and tapes of "found sounds." The album opens with a lush cover of Jimmy Page’s Black Mountain Side, and ever afterwards devotes itself to the vast, mysterious explorations of Tibbetts and percussionist Marc Anderson. The music’s brooding and orchestral, with moments of Eastern intrigue giving way to sudden crescendos, children’s voices, and industrial grunge. Tibbetts’ bold single-string passages pilot twists and turns above slapped and strummed acoustic rhythms, and his quirky detunings and oddball figures provide a cinematic, edge-of-the-seat experience. No timidity or lack of ideas lurking here!

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!
