Performance of Aether by Jordan Nobles


This is a performance of Jordan Nobles' Aether, a work for spatialized choir and wind ensemble. Performed live Nov. 5, 2011 in the cavernous Vancouver Public Library Atrium performed by the Vancouver Bach Choir and the Negative Zed Ensemble, conducted by Leslie Dala.

Nobles writes in the programme note: "The æther (also spelled aether or ether) was once believed to be the material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere, where the stars reside. Instead of the vacuum we know is there today previously it was imagined that a vaporous element surrounded the Earth, filled the heavens and was the very breath of the Gods. æther is inspired by, and dedicated to, Kelly Nobles."
