Program Notes

From a faraway perspective, the natural phenomena of the sun's solar flare is another spectacle to behold in the wonders of our solar system. Its presence on the sun's surface level is shockingly illuminating, a sheer feat in and of itself. However, within this beauty lies an even darker threat to our own planet's most technological advances: the coronal mass ejection, another natural phenomena prone to disrupt radio communications, damage satellites, and create large power outages for extended durations of time among other things.

Solar Flare encapsulates both the mystery of this dazzling aura with its powerful destructive capabilities. It begins with a sense of wonder -- yet, it does not stay there for long. A persistent motive slowly creeps in and takes over, leading to a fast-paced game of survival against the awesome might of this beautiful, but dangerous, display.
