Composer, performer, and producer Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith’s new album ‘EARS’ is an immersive listening experience in which dizzying swirls of organic and synthesized sounds work together to create a sense of three-dimensional space and propulsion. Dense and carefully crafted, each of the songs on ‘EARS’ unfolds with a fluid elegance, while maintaining a spontaneous energy, and a sprightly sense of discovery.
