“expertly arranged with a theatrical sensibility that makes you feel completely enveloped.”

Each piece was carefully scored to a classic Maritime sea monster tale with a science fiction twist; released as a hardcover book with illustrations by Geordan Moore (Quarrelsome Yeti) and writing byJordan Crute & Van Tassel. Combining underwater field recordings from Newfoundland, new instruments created at the National Music Centre, orchestral strings, and some of the country’s best session musicians, Crossworlds is an entirely unique and compelling accomplishment.
