Seattle Symphony & John Luther Adams: Composing Become Desert

John Luther Adams’ Become Desert is the much-anticipated sequel to the Pulitzer-winning Become Ocean, and a major milestone in the creative partnership between the composer and the Seattle Symphony with Ludovic Morlot. With Become Desert, space is once again a fundamental compositional element in Adams', but on a larger scale, with five different ensembles moving at five different tempos.

Along the way, “You begin to feel that this music you had thought was suspended in time is slowly leading you somewhere, pulling you somewhere. It continues upward, rising with inevitable force, like the wind or the light.”
