Percussionist Ying Hsueh Chen writes of her new album, Raw Elegance: “The recurring theme of my performances and projects is bringing people from all walks of life and of all ages back to the source of life- myster, through any styles of music, and with this album, primordial contemporary music. For me, being in touch with mystic powers is the key to bringing out fully the groove and universality in contemporary music, as mystery transcends polarities, time, and physical dimensions. The title Raw Elegance came from my many years of fascination with and exploration of different combinations of polarities. Raw Elegance is one such polarity which was inherent in me but became more and more pronounced as I gradually found peace with the extremes in myself over the years, as part of my journey towards maturity. Raw Elegance sums up the general polarities in my personal style and taste on stage: I am a woman percussionist with a slim physique, yet by nature I perform with primitive power, intuition, and speed. Here, I present three timeless European contemporary works: Xenakis’s ‘Rebonds,’ Billone’s ‘Mani.Matta,’ and Odin’s ‘Maskine;’ skin, wood, and metal. This album is a trilogy in itself. These three architectural works bring people in trance in their own unique ways, and I believe the originality and universality of the works will one day make them a tradition.”

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!
