Program Notes
Aurora was written for the concert project Tvístrun (Dispersion), a collaboration between UNM and Elja Ensemble. Loosely inspired by the Northern Lights dancing across the skies, the music is characterised by fast scales, arpeggios and trills, mixed with longer sustained notes. The harmony is based on distorted harmonic series, which is an attempt to reflect on the colorful and exotic character of the Northern Lights.
