Biography

ARIA ORION, a new project from composer and performer Jules Gimbrone, weaves mystical tales
with experimental arrangements, orchestral dramatics, and soulful melodic phrasing. In the fall of
2008 they recorded an epic narrative entitled, Let the Sharp Stone Fly.
“The music is an acoustic dream of eerie, ethereal, bold movements and spine-tingling combina-
tion of instruments. Jules emotional shaky high vocal range turns and twists within and mysteri-
ously edges around the instrumentation.” (Obsession Collection, 2008)
Blending emotive vocals, oboe, upright bass, accordion, drums, violin and electric guitar/lap steel,
ARIA ORION achieves an arc of textures unique in vision and scope. Poetics of lyrics and instru-
mentation usher the listener into a world of startling discoveries, each section peeling away a new
layer of luminosity and exploration. A mountain, shrouded in pines, cut-off from civilization sets the
stage for the characters of Let the Sharp Stone Fly. Where a pubescent boy, amatory rabbit,
androgynous sooth-sayer (augur), fearful town, and a fleet of birds-turned-missiles all collide. A
perpetual loneliness is at the heart of this piece, with the characters exhibiting an array of desper-
ate and sometimes destructive attempts at connection, both internally and externally. With these
encounters, Let the Sharp Stone Fly, performs aural acts of violence and redemption all in the
name of love.
