On April 19, 2010, saxophonist Femke IJlstra sent an email to poet Tsead Bruinja asking if he might be interested in collaborating on a new project with poetry and modern classical music, in which melancholy for the shared Frisian past would play an important role. Bruinja wrote a poem about a neighbour from the village where he came from, who kept a close eye on who was passing by while vacuuming the neat front room, with the working vitamins in the background. The project was entitled Stofsûgersjongers (Vacuum Cleaner Singers). The poem did not survive the selection, but the title was taken and on the advice of Bruinja, a collaboration was also sought with visual artist Mirka Farabegoli, who previously, following a workshop, invited him to write new work at her first exhibition "God Made Me Funky". So what started as an idea for a theatre program became a book and an album with poems, compositions, and etchings about coming home in the broadest sense of the word. Coming home in the present and the past and how possible and impossible that is.

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!
