Part of his trilogy about nature, this is a 40 min. piece celebrating and despairing deserts (human-made). Spacey, quiet, beautiful for symphony.
One single piece for strings, ambient, building slowly over time. Sample!
With explanations of the works, two pieces by Adams, Chamber Symphony and Son of Chamber Symphony–gracious, busy, repetitive.
Surreal, eerie, otherworld tonescapes for electro-acoustic percussion
Mr. Adams’ follow-up to his Pulitzer winning album Become Ocean, is also minimalist, eerie, dark and beautiful. String quartet with cello ensemble, only open strings used in an attempt to copy the Aeolian harp. Play!
This is the Pulitzer Prize winning composition performed by the Seattle Symphony–one long piece, minimalist, a little eerie, mimicking water and being underwater reflecting global warming and rising ocean levels.
