Dark Speech from Los Angeles interdisciplinary artist Geneva Skeen was first conceived in October 2014 and has developed over time to include recordings from several geographical locations marked by intense transformation: a boat nearly 200 yards from an erupting volcano in the Galápagos Islands at night, a cavern of snow-covered trees in the dark of Finnish winter, the end of summer in the drought-ridden Californian desert, a power outage during a heavy rainstorm at the San Andreas fault. The original recordings intentionally maintain a sense of subjective listening and human presence, while repeated cycles of digital effects push the primary organic materials toward literal transposition. Each work stands as a vessel containing a document of these intertwinings, an enclosed textural representation of the haunting and indiscernible darkness of attempting to understand the human self within geologic time and drama.

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!
