In the far reaches of the north, during the endless night of the arctic winter, solar winds disturb Earth's magnetosphere. On the ground, people look up from the shimmering snow in wonder as the aurora borealis--the northern lights--sparkle in the sky. Capricious, ever-shifting in colour, texture, and shape, they shimmer and dance in the air like magic. The lights coalesce from nothing into a spectacular, ephemeral display before fading again, leaving behind nothing but the stars and a memory of magic.

Aurora was selected as the third place winner in the 2020 Warsaw Wind Ensemble Composition Contest.
