"The results are relatively slow and steady, full of space and rich with mountain and ocean air. Maurseth will set up a repeating phrase and Nordli will swoop and fly above it, as a bird on an airwave. The blend of the smooth clear voice and the slightly rasping strings is just close enough and just distinct enough. The kind of album that surrounds the listener in a whole other world."

Over Tones showcases the talents of two exceptional folk musicians from the West of Norway: Benedicte Maurseth on vocals and the Hardanger fiddle and vocalist Åsne Valland Nordli. Both musicians, well established in their homeland, have found personal ways to extend the essence of a great tradition, through historically informed interpretations of old music and also through their own pieces. The purity of the delivery, of old music and new music alike, makes this a timeless performance.

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!
