An earth-bound expression of tone connects us to a cosmic resonance of truth, beauty, and inner stillness in Constellations, the latest album by Jane Antonia Cornish. She accomplishes this transmutation through her unparalleled control of material and striking orchestration. The album's five works present an overarching narrative that fuses them into a cohesive and musical cosmos. Scored for piano, strings, and electronics, Cornish explores the resonance and sonic individuality of the instruments with lapidary brilliance. This is music of unparalleled precision. However, the listener does not sense that anything has been withheld; quite the opposite, as a masterful balance of space and silence participates equally with tone and resonance in creating the musical alchemy that is the Cornish sound-world.

Zoe's awe-inspiring music is haunting and beautiful, stimulating a strong emotional response. I can imagine strolling through the woods with this music playing in my head. It has a very hypnotic, nature-like element to it. I had this on my radar for a while and finally got around to making the purchase. Magnificent music! Rob O.
