And then the overthinking set in.

How do we express emotion in music without resorting to cliché? Is emotionalism an appropriate response to calamitous world events? Can making music even be justified as a good use of time, given the growing urgency of our global predicament? Immediately, the project became a lot less like what everyone else was doing and a lot more like connect_icut.

The modus operandi became to embrace the doubt, ask all the questions and ruthlessly edit out anything that sounded like a trite, easy answer. No Darkness became No Darkness?—a much thornier proposition altogether. While many moments of straightforward melancholy beauty remain, the album has a distinct sense on unease about it. Keeps things interesting. The end result has all the chiming melodicism and glitchy arrhythmic chaos that those familiar would expect from a connect_icut album. But despite all the critical nit-picking that went into its creation, No Darkness? really does have a particularly apposite sense of warmth and melancholy that is quite new to the world of connect_icut.

No Darkness? was completed in March 2018 and sent to Stephan Mathieu for mastering.

You are invited to overthink it.

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!
