"... a stylistically manifold collection of works at the intersection of cello and electronics and one that makes a strong case for their interdependence and nonviolent collaboration ... riveting delivery ..." - WQXR-FM Long admired on the New York scene, cellist Michael Nicolas enjoys a diverse career as soloist, chamber musician, recording artist and improvisor. On these six pieces, Nicolas adheres not to any one genre, but simply to a general idea exploring the human/machine dichotomy. As he approaches from as many angles as possible, the album is very diverse, featuring composers from three continents with works spanning over 50 years. There are duos for cello and electronics, cello solos with electronic backing tracks, multilayered cello tracks and a solo piece. Nicolas hopes to expose listeners to several new sounds and ways to organize them, connecting them to more traditional ideas of musical expression.

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!
