Arraymusic’s mission is to ignite and sustain a passion for contemporary Canadian musical art within an international, interdisciplinary context.Celestial Machine was the first recording entirely devoted to the music of Vancouver, Canada, composer Owen Underhill. This CD collects works of varied instrumentation completed between 1984 and 1999.Mr. Underhill writes: "I have long been fascinated by the unusual and poetic place-names for lunar features which were created by Johannes Ricciocoli in the mid-17th century. One such name is the 'Bay of Dew' or 'Sinus Roris' in Latin. The 'Bay of Dew' is in fact a crater on the moon, but in my mind, I envisaged a tiny body of water that had been entirely created by the gradual collection of precious drops of dew as they formulated in the early morning hours."In 2010 flutist Mark Takeshi McGregor asked seven Canadian composers to write a work for solo flute, each inspired by one of the Seven Deadly Sins.
