This title provides a personal journey into the soul of the Arctic. Did Alaska create the music of John Luther Adams, or did the music create his Alaska? In this new book, Adams proposes a musical ecology, the philosophical foundation on which his largest, most complex musical work is based - a sound and light environment that Adams describes as 'a place for hearing the unheard music of the world around us'. The book includes two seminal essays, the composer's journal, musical notations, and illustrations. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
