"A WORK OF CONSIDERABLE DARING AND VISION...PORTRAYS FEAR AND HOPE, UGLINESS AND BEAUTY, NIHILISM AND SENSUALITY". - The Chicago Tribune
"Intergalactic Beings" forms the second chapter in flutist Nicole Mitchell's science fiction derived discographical strand. Like the first, Xenogenesis Suite (Firehouse 12, 2008), it showcases Mitchell the composer, again drawing her inspiration from the Afrofuturist novels of Octavia Butler, in which survivors of nuclear holocaust are plucked from earth by aliens who believe that interbreeding is the only way to save the humans from themselves. Commissioned by the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, the recording documents the premier at the institution in April 2010. Inevitably given the subject matter, this results in another performance rich in mystery and ominous brooding moods.
