John Luther Adams’ “Become Desert,” out on Cantaloupe Music on June 14, is a NPR Music First Listen.
“’Become Desert’ is constantly in flux. Through intricate orchestration, Adams conjures glistening shafts of light, distant rolling thunder and flickering colors refracting in the haze of desert heat. The closer one listens to this 40-minute mirage, more is revealed, perhaps even something close to enlightenment.”
