John Luther Adams: III. Weather, Wind and Being Brave

The weather of music

Music isn't always constrained to the sonic world. In Adams's work, installations have played a large roll, bringing his sounds to life via geologic activity, weather systems and physical space. In the third movement of episode one, learn about his composing methods and hear the JACK Quartet play part of an unreleased string quartet—Adams's first—called The Wind in High Places. 

The Wind in High Places will be released in a studio recording in January 2015 on Cold Blue.
