about

On August 27, 2016 more than 70 percussionists came together to perform John Luther Adams’s “Inuksuit,” an epic outdoor piece that has helped to redefine what live musical experience can be in the 21st-century.

On the official 5.1 surround Cantaloupe recording, the mix was created from dozens of fixed-position microphones. John Luther Adams talks about a special experience of hearing this piece live being for the listener to choose his or her own path through the landscape of musicians, resulting in a unique experience for every individual listener. This recording, captured by Cantaloupe's resident field recorder Adam Cuthbert, means to capture one example of this by perpetually moving to make this recording conceptually different from the official recording, and more similar to any given individual audience member's experience.
