Vancouver jazz musician Gordon Grdina assembled his sideline large ensemble Haram in 2008 to study and perform some of the Arabic repertoire he had been playing in small groups. The pieces on this 2012 debut Her Eyes Illuminate are lovingly reinterpreted with an ensemble half studied in the tradition and half who cut their teeth in the improv-indie-rock-jazz scene. This blend of musicians is what gives Haram its unique sound. These traditional pieces are not simply recited, but paid reverence to amid the openness of improvisational ideologies, blown wide open by this ensemble mixing elements of noise, electronic soundscape and western free improvisation.

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!
