New Thread Quartet is an “adventurous, rule-breaking” (NewMusicBox) saxophone quartet who focuses on working closely with composers, from students to established professionals, to bring life to today’s compositional voices. Plastic Facts is the group’s debut album, highlighting their extended collaborations with composers in music that explores the intricacies of extended techniques on the saxophone and the unique sound worlds available to this ensemble, underpinned by the quartet’s virtuosic ensemble playing.

New Thread Quartet shines throughout with their skill and deft ability to make extended techniques purely expressive in this album, reaping the dividends paid through their close collaboration with each composer.

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!
