Breckenridge, CO—Sila

August 13, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm

Wander around the Riverwalk Center Lawn and be part of the “ecological listening” this unique composition by John Luther Adams celebrates. Musicians of the Breckenridge Music Festival Orchestra are set loose from the conductor’s baton and allowed to play at their own tempo, with just one condition: each sustained tone or rising phrase lasts the length of a full exhalation. The composer’s deep concern with the interactions between humans and environment are exhibited, and what results, as Adams says, is “the breath of the world, the memories of not just one of us, but all of us.” Co-presented with Breckenridge International Festival of Arts (BIFA).
