There are certain events that unfold as if their destiny was written in the stars. Kirasu began as a coincidence of three musicians, Sarah Fontenelle, David Rosser, and Alex Smith, talking about the afterlife, that cosmic migration, under the night sky. We had no idea that one of us would undertake that journey so soon. The series of impossible coincidences that carried the project along led us to recognize there was something much larger, much stranger at work, a kind of divine physics hidden behind everything familiar. In an attempt to explore this constellation of mysterious entanglements, we decided to expand the concept of Kirasu to create more than songs – we wanted to create innovative and mindful musical experiences.
