John Luther Adams – Veils and Vesper

October 21 at 7PM at the Winter Garden in Brookfield Place, Ekmeles performs as part of John Luther Adams’s Veils and Vesper.

Experience an immersive sound installation within the Winter Garden palm trees as part of Brookfield Place‘s annual music series, New Sounds Live, curated by John Schaefer of WNYC.

The installation titled, Veils and Vesper, is a composition of synthetic sounds by John Luther Adams that is formed by the interactions of a mathematical algorithm and prime numbers to create a sensuous, ever-changing soundscape.

We will sing for one hour during this six-hour installation work for electronics that loops from October 16-24.
