J Hamilton Isaacs – Circumzenithal Arc


We are so honored to present this album from one of our favorite artists, whom we had the pleasure of meeting and recording on Aura Borealis back in 2017. Art by the legendary Ben Zoeller.

From the artist:

“A while back I became fixated on an atmospheric optical phenomenon known as Sun Dogs. You’ll see them when there are ice crystals in the upper atmosphere and light from the sun is reflected and bent to form a halo at 22º. At the top sometimes an arc of light that looks like an upside down rainbow is visible. This is called the circumzenithal arc. CZA is a musical appreciation and interpretation of these forms and how they manifest in nature and art. Around the time of completing this piece I received a commission from the Denver Botanic Gardens to provide musical interpretations to 5 large outdoor sculptures selected from their Spring 2019 exhibit entitled Human Nature.

This music was made from a perspective of finding beauty in physical light and channeling that appreciation to shine an inner metaphorical or metaphysical Light within.”


Circumzenithal Arc is now available for preorder from the Ingrown store.

Sometimes the tag experimental gets used and abused by people who just do whatever anyone else has been doing, but when we really hear something that is planting the flag into ‘experimental’  as the word was intended for; real minds are blown apart in many lucky pieces! My mind was all over the place, but luckily the many unpaid assistants at the YIKIS office brushed all the pieces back together and stuck it all nicely back in through a unlucky nose hole. It was very nice of them that they did that, as without a brain I would probably not be able to report on ‘ultra extra’, the album that was solidly responsible for the brain explosion!

An album indeed nicely tucked in the experimental…
