John Luther Adams

John Luther Adams is a composer whose life and work are deeply rooted in the natural world. This sentence is from his biography on his website. This includes all, and I would just like to add that he makes watchers to his videos and listeners to his sounds, aware of sound, in huge dimensions, depths.

The first video is named: Become Ocean, performed by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. People explain what they experience. In the second video you can hear the complete composition, without interruptions.

The third video seems to be without sound, but he expresses the nearness of all one sees and one can sense the energy of the inhabitants. Furniture, shoes, books, all in the house absorbs the energy of the inhabitants. That what you see radiates this energy and that energy is sound, and for Adams this is music.
