Profile
Choirs of Aether is a project led by Vermont based multi-instrumentalist and composer Bow Thayer (best known for his explorations of Americana, rock, bluegrass, and folk) that explores the boundaries of traditional music and things yet undiscovered. It began as a tribute to Sun Ra, but from there will forge ahead as a cosmic exploration of original music, both new and old, focusing on the collaboration and musical interplay/language with the multitude of musicians and artists Thayer has met along the way.
