Lewiston, NY—Ten Thousand Birds
Described by The New York Times as “…one of the most vital and original ensembles on the American Music scene,” Alarm Will Sound will present John Luther Adams ’ “Ten Thousand Birds” as part of Artpark’s Music in the Woods series to be announced shortly.
The piece is based on the songs of birds that are native to, or migrate through the area in which the piece is performed. It explores the connections between nature and music, a topic that Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-winner John Luther Adams has pursued over the course of his remarkable career and is a common theme in Artpark’s programming.
We’ve designed this performance so that the musicians and audience can move around each other, always at a safe distance, listening from changing perspectives while surrounded by the music.
