James Jordan writes: “I suppose as artists we are always searching for metaphors that speak directly to the musics we perform to guide us and inspire. The music on this release pushes our boundaries of what could be considered "normal" music making and instead moves us into sound worlds that expand what a choral ensemble can produce. This recording, which documents an almost three-year exploration into improvisation in various forms, contains works for choral ensembles that create new sound worlds in and of themselves. All of the works on this album create Auroras of their own that touch us deeply and cover our senses with streams of light. Hopefully the sounds on this release will, as Makoto Fujimura says, "bring you outside of yourself, and pull you to look at the [life's] horizon and to see beyond."
