The Otherworld Cycle is a set of original songs with improvised vocal transitions written for ensembles ranging in size from 5-15 performing musicians.

“The other world is a place we all carry with us. Deep inside it manifests as unknown melodies while walking down the street, a feeling of Déjà Vu for people and places we’ve never been before, and a kinship with people we’ve never known."
