Following two highly praised trio albums, pianist Marilyn Crispell and percussionist Paul Lytton join composer and bassist Barry Guy once again on Deep Memory, inspired by Irish painter Hughie O’Donoghue. Guy bases these tracks on titles of works courtesy of O’Donoghue’s 2007 Berlin exhibition Last Poems. The resulting pieces emerge with a tense and lacerating beauty, where tonal painting contrasts with abstract reflection, expressive moments stand next to elegant moods and powerful improvisation meets lyrical intimacy.

"Beyond the titles of Hughie O’ Donoghue’s paintings, the viewer becomes aware that he has a deep love for the act of applying paint to a canvas, an emotional act with an historical perspective. His complex layering of paint gives us rich colours and surface textures in the manner of Titian. I hope it would not be too fanciful to say that the music of the trio in a similar way engages with the tradition of the medium whilst exploring new avenues of expression for the inquisitive listener."

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!
