This groundbreaking release is the culmination of 12 years of effort from composer Joseph Bertolozzi. All the music was created and played on the Eiffel Tower, without any other instruments or effects. He captured the tower’s sounds with microphones placed on its surfaces and wrote the work using only those natural sounds he recorded. Bertolozzi was granted permission to pursue the project by the tower's administration after demonstrating the care he took with his previous project Bridge Music, composed for and performed on New York’s Mid-Hudson Bridge, using techniques that would not damage structural integrity and providing safe conditions for the musicians.

"For over 100 years the Eiffel Tower has been hailed as an architectural landmark, an engineering feat, a monument, a destination. Now it will reveal its music."
- Joseph Bertolozzi

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!
