About "Primordial Covenant"
It is important to stay aligned with your North Star and not lose your way in these cataclysmic times as we live through climate upheavals, wars, displacement, and many social injustices that leave us anxious and confronting dread. Primordial Covenant is an introspective, deep listening, and contemplative piece and reflects a primordial conversation with what brought us into creation. This art song draws upon the Hindustani art style of Khayal, western chromaticism, and Middle-Eastern mode: Hijaz and is described by listeners as peaceful, trancing, and emotionally visceral. Based on a poem by Hemani that the New Forum Magazine nominated for the Alberta Magazine Awards in poetry, this song is nothing like you have heard before.
