Echoing the environmental themes and communal experience of John Luther Adams's In the Name of the Earth, Michael Pisaro’s 75-minute piece embeds audience members in a grid of 100 performers, where they are slowly submerged in an ocean of sound. Isolated, imperceptibly soft noises—sandpaper on stone, seeds falling on glass, bowed bells—are layered into powerful waves of sound adding to the immersive nature of the experience. A work of monumental scale, presented with uncommon immediacy, a wave and waves melds microscopic moments of friction, gravity, and vibration into a single, pulsing organism.

Quietly epic...mammoth in scale, and microscopic in detail... an iridescent aural landscape (or seascape), not to mention a truly magical, and deeply meditative, listening experience...the ultimate practice in mindfulness
Enthralling and mesmerizing.
