Originally a commission for Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, the piece has transitioned and evolved into a full length album co-composed by Bryce Dessner, James McAlister, Nico Muhly, and Sufjan. Flanked by a string quartet and a consort of seven trombones, the ensemble has assembled an expansive song cycle that explores the Sun, the Moon, the planets and other celestial bodies of our solar system (and beyond) through soundscape, song, science and myth.
