"... explores the far sonic edges of what one man and a guitar can create, a solo recording of almost orchestral atmosphere."
- PopMatters.com

"Five Stars ... may come the closest to delivering the whole package when it comes to defining what David Torn is all about ... everything from harsh angularity to unabashed beauty can be found on only sky, yet another album which suggests that it's those Torn makes for ECM that are invariably his best ... in this case, his most personal, too."
- All About Jazz

Composer and electronic musician pioneer David Torn delivers his first full album of new material in eight years with only sky, a collection of complex and challenging pieces for solo guitar. In addition to his own career, Torn is renowned for his film and television scores for productions including Friday Night Lights and The Big Lebowski as well as his session work for artists such as David Bowie and Madonna. Torn even won a Grammy Award in 2004 for producing a Jeff Beck album.

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!
