Music has been influenced by the natural world since its first notes, and John Luther Adams is at the forefront of the contemporary environmental conversation. Written in 2005, Adams’s Veils and Vesper is a meditative reflection on nature and our interactions within it. It is an electronic work informed by an interplay of synthetic sounds and mathematical algorithm based on the prime numbers, resulting in a sensuous, ever-changing soundscape. In this six-hour work, Adams combines four distinct sections (“Falling Veil,” “Crossing Veil,” “Rising Veil” and “Vesper”) into a singular work. As patrons explore the installation, the work evolves uniquely around each person’s experience. Veils and Vesper can be experienced in segments or in one visit, and we encourage everyone to visit the installation in the way they feel most appropriate.
