Listening to Adam’s Orchestral Ocean

Adam’s Orchestral Ocean

The award-winning ocean inspired musical piece has finally announced that its premiere recording is under way. The American composer, John Luther Adams’s award-winning orchestral work aptly titled Become Ocean will be recorded by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and Ludovic Morlot. According to Alex Ross, the three huge crescendos suggest an apocalyptic tidal wave surging washing over all the lands. Adam’s single-movement orchestration evokes the feeling of the vast watery regions of the planet and won him the 2014 Pulitzer Music Prize.
