Beyond Orbits is the new album from composer and conductor Miho Hazama, the vibrant new album that, with her ensemble M-Unit, celebrates their 10th anniversary this year. This album is testament to her endless creativity and artistic vision that has prompted her remarkable growth of her career in Japan, Europe and the US in recent years. Beyond Orbits is an album born out of the challenges that unfolded over the past few years. Confined to a small apartment in Harlem, New York, during the pandemic, amidst a backdrop of intense political turbulence, including a consequential presidential election, Miho Hazama was faced with a profound sense of disconnection. Redirecting her focus beyond the tumultuous world, Miho decided to shift her focus away from the world and began researching exoplanets. She found two with unique characteristics and decided to create a concept around them. After receiving a prestigious commission in 2021 from the Monterey Jazz Festival, Miho Hazama wrote a new work that resulted in the Exoplanet Suite, which pays homage to the captivating wonders of the exoplanetary realm. This idea became the core of the album with movements titled Electro Elliptical Orbits, As a Three Sunlight and Planet Nine.
