Superheroes are often portrayed as having preternatural qualities not found here on Earth - immortal, impenetrable, impossibly strong or lightning fast. Us mere mortals might be defeated more easily, but we’ve got swagger, we’ve got heart, and we know how to maneuver through an asteroid belt at top speeds. Through their own earthly powers, these mortals can transcend their limitations, and these heroes can become legends.
As science is fueled by human curiosity, so too does music strive to connect us all to a universal human experience. Ascendance explores those uniquely human moments of triumph and tenderness, inspiration and imagination, darkness and even danger by fusing the timeless sounds of a live orchestra and bold, modern hybrid elements.
