Combining heavily arpeggiated synthesizers with electric organ and orchestral percussion, Braden Diotte’s Extraordinary Angels paints the backdrop to a scene most commonly relegated to science fiction films: communion with extraterrestrial life. Familiar timbres intertwine with those that are alien to our ears, in a conversation that emphasizes our similarities and celebrates our differences.

“In essence, Extraordinary Angels is an audible question mark; a note-to-self reminder of the importance of maintaining an inquisitive spirit, and resisting calcification into hard lined notions of what is true, false, right and wrong. It also serves as an homage to unexplored possibilities, undiscovered realities and unconstrained belief in its most innocent form. Based loosely upon the numerous tales of extraterrestrial encounters in the deserts of Southern California in the mid-twentieth century, Extraordinary Angels spends a night of significance under the stars, staring up, asking questions without a need for answers.”
