"Core" is the first of fourteen live recordings from Emily Palen's second solo violin album Creation. All music was completely improvised with no pre-composition. The only edits used in the production of this album were entrances and exits of each track. The audio was recorded using hi-definition SACD technology, capturing millions of audio bites per second, matching the quality of a live performance. Creation was recorded by Cookie Marenco of Blue Coast Records and is released on Valence Records.
