Aporia is a New Age album from Sufjan Stevens and his step-father and record label co-owner, Lowell Brams, brimming with moody, hooky, gauzy synthesizer soundscapes and created collaboratively in the spirit of the New Age composers who sanded off the edges of their synths' sawtooth; Aporia is not a mere curio in the Sufjan Stevens catalog - but a fully realized collaborative musical piece.

Aporia approximates a rich soundtrack from an imagined sci-fi epic brimming with moody, hooky, gauzy synthesizer soundscapes.

The album may suggest the progeny of a John Carpenter, Wendy Carlos, and Mike Oldfield marriage, but it stands apart from these touchstones and generates a meditative universe all its own.
