Anna Thorvaldsdottir's Aeriality seems to express both stasis and motion at the same time. The Washington Post called it "a big, spinning planet of a work that contains multitudes." Host Steve Seel features it on this week's show, as well as music by Kaki King, Osvaldo Golijov, Du Yun, and Jane Antonia Cornish.
