For his debut album, the CIOC First Prize winner chose works by Fernando Germani, Percy Whitlock, Sigfrid Karg-Elert, Jeanne Demessieux, Rachel Laurin, Henri Duparc (in a transcription by Aaron Tan) and Louis Vierne, performed on the Casavant Opus 796 organ at Our Lady Immaculate Basilica in Guelph, Ontario.

He recently received his Master of Music and Master of Musical Arts from Yale University. As a scientist, Aaron holds a PhD in Materials Science from the University of Michigan and worked there as a postdoctoral researcher after earning his degree, studying polymer thin films.
