Music that is spontaneously composed originates from the presence of the spirit: music extempore. With that goal, Michael Gees embraced the music of French composer and pianist Erik Satie on ImproviSatie. Through closely tied and personalized improvisation, he gained insights and found open windows and doors, looking into Satie’s music and applying the rules it follows. "He himself led the path. With his Wrong Dances he wrote the same piece three times: in his understanding, apparently, there is no one phrasing of a thought that remains valid through the times." - Michael Gees

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!
