“Life on this earth first emerged from the sea. As the polar ice melts and sea level rises, we humans find ourselves facing the prospect that once again we may quite literally become ocean.”
An immersive listening experience of Become Ocean (2013), the Pulitzer prize-winning composition by John Luther Adam that probes humanity’s existence on a water planet. Presented in Finland for the first time, the surround sound listening environment invites participants to close their eyes and imagine the slow emergence of life onto land and its return to the ocean that might be sooner than we think.
