"I feel Tales 'From The Treetops' is the true follow-up to 'Blue Mind' ...a
collection of people and their tales we’ve already met in that first album. The
themes behind 'Little Black Lake' are still very much present and the characters
move around a natural, savage landscape. We will discover still more about the
magnificent 'Lady of the Black Lake', as we follow her journey from childhood (I
Live in a Treehouse) to her final days (Winter’s Coming). These are songs of
emotion, passion, love and mourning..." - Anne Bisson
All About Ultimate High Quality CD (UHQCD)
Many years have passed since the birth of the Audio Compact Disc (CD) back in
1982. By use of High-Quality materials and a totally different manufacturing
method, the definitive version of audiophile audio CD was born. Playable on any
CD player, the Ultimate High Quality CD greatly surpasses all previous CDs
The Ultimate High Quality CD (UHQCD):
UHQCD is a radical change to the CD manufacturing process itself. The
conventional wisdom about CD manufacturing, which had remained largely unchanged
across the world for over 30 years, has been exhaustively questioned. Through
this effort, the ultimate in quality was attained - a level of quality that is
certainly impossible to achieve with existing CD discs.
The Ultimate High Quality CD was developed through an effort to improve audio
quality by simply upgrading the materials used in ordinary CDs to higher quality
materials. For the substrate a high-transparency and high-fluidity polycarbonate
(a type of plastic) of the type used for LCD panels was used, while for the
reflective layer, low-cost, common aluminum was replaced with a unique and
expensive alloy of high-reflectivity.
Differences in manufacturing methods:
Conventional CDs are produced using the technique of injection molding to form
"pits" of data on polycarbonate material. Metal plate on which "pits"
representing audio source data are formed is used as a die. This is called the "stamper."
Polycarbonate is melted at high temperature and poured into the die to duplicate
the pit patterns on the stamper.
This method is efficient because it enables high-speed production, but it does
not enable totally accurate or complete duplication of the pits on the stamper.
As a melted plastic, polycarbonate is inevitably viscous, so it cannot penetrate
completely into every land and groove of the tiny pits of the stamper.
The Ultimate High Quality CD photopolymer is used instead of polycarbonate to
replicate the pits of the stamper. In their normal state, photopolymers are
liquids, but one of their characteristic properties is that they harden when
exposed to light of certain wavelengths. The advantage of this property, perfect
replication of very finely detailed pits was achieved. Photopolymers in the
liquid state are able to penetrate into the tiniest corners of pits on the
stamper so that the pattern of the pits is reproduced to an extremely high level
of accuracy. The Ultimate High Quality CD reproduces audio with greater
precision and at a level that is impossible to achieve using conventional CD
