How is this one?

It's an electroacoustic piece with percussion and drum kit. No melodic instrument like vibraphone or marimba is used. The powerful rhythm in the electronic soundscape sounds primitive and earthy, but it's preciously played. I liked the energetic sound. If you enjoyed Inuksuit, I think you would like it.

According to the liner notes, this is the first CD of the complete acoustic music for solo piano by John Luther Adams. Among Red Mountains was recorded on a Cold Blue album, but I don't know if the others have been recorded before. The works of Adams are grand, and the other composers' works are very good too. A powerfull, uplifting and beautiful album.

In case any of you missed last year's Ojai Festival, you can hear John Luther Adams' Become River right here.

Lots of seemingly interesting compositions from Adams the last couple of years, including "Ten Thousand Birds." I wonder when we'll have a new recording.
