xenharmonicgod This album is an absolute gem - it sounds bright, polished, texturally variant, and rich with life. So much effort clearly went into this with the vast number of instruments and overlapping lines, though it all sounds effortless and completely natural. I enjoy singing along with the sing-along book! If you don't think this album is interesting, I can't be friends with you. My only superficial complaint is that I wish a lot of the songs were longer! That said, I love almost EVERY moment in this! Favorite track: Multiverse.

about

This album features five creatively-tuned, orchestrationally-extravagant, contrapuntally-virtuosic studio recordings: two wild, spiraling canons by Dan Sedgwick & Marji Gere, an ecstatic, otherworldly round by Andrew Heathwaite, and two jam-worthy earworms by Jacob Barton. We are eager to share these surprising sounds with adventurous music lovers around the world.
