"... here’s the Seattle Symphony happily reaching out to and spotlighting (Trimpin's John Cage) aesthetic descendant, a mere half century later! ... yet another example of how the SSO under Morlot is moving closer to where it belongs: at the forefront of creativity and novelty ..."
- Seattle Weekly

This unique and fascinating album was recorded live at the world premiere of Above, Below and in Between, a Seattle Symphony Orchestra commission and site-specific composition by German kinetic sculptor and sound artist Trimpin. Ludovic Morlot conducts the work which explores the space and time continuum, performed by small orchestra, soprano voice, prepared piano, kinetic instruments and gesture-controlled conducting. Created in collaboration with a creative technologist at Intel, the piece uses a new gesture sensing tool that allows Morlot to control the dynamic levels of the kinetic instruments from the conductor's stand.

"Trimpin’s unique sounds and ideas created with incredible artistry is something I appreciate. To think outside of the box, using technology to explore musical possibilities, is fascinating."
- Ludovic Morlot

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!
