This Numbered & Signed MasterFlash™ 4GB Flash card comes loaded with Small
World Project's Small Is Beautiful album. The card also includes the album cover in JPEG format, the
booklet with all information, a XML file with all track names, an ISRC code and
the Fidelio catalogue in PDF.
There’s no doubt about it: It’s a small world — and it’s especially small at
Small World project performances, where everyone plays small-scale instruments
to produce rare and compelling music of the world. Sébastien Dufour’s charango
and ukulele take centre stage, accompanied by Patrick Graham’s miniature
percussion section on the cajonito, kanjira, gattam, carillon and other
diminutive devices. Resonating through it all is Frédéric Samson on his double
bass — a big, contrasting exception in this small world of music, whose
enveloping depths will balance the voices of the other instruments.
Drawing its inspiration from the four corners of the globe, Small World
Project’s music vibrates with Brazilian samba beats, Chilean folklore, flamenco
Andalou, Hawaiian Island melodies, and the musical strains of Morocco, Senegal,
India — with some good old American bluegrass in the mix. Primarily scored by
ensemble leader Sébastien Dufour, this trio’s original music is all about
decompartmentalizing musical styles by integrating pure “world” elements,
classical music and jazz.
For the first time in the history of recording, it is now possible to play back
music that has not been altered by any moving part, from the original recording
session to your audio system through a computer or a music server. Fidelio
records all sessions on a SSD drive and later, they upload directly the
unadulterated master on a MasterFlash™ card.
The MasterFlash™ is a 4 GB Flash card that connects to the computer like any
regular USB key. All MasterFlash™ cards are numbered and signed and contain a
Fidelio recording master in 24Bit/96kHz or 24Bit/176kHz original native WAVE
file format (without up or downsampling). The cards also include the album cover
in JPEG format, the booklet with all information, a XML file with all track
names, an ISRC code and the Fidelio catalogue in PDF.
The advantage of this new technology over DVD data or downloads is a more open
and stable imaging with truly pure, natural high frequencies.
