John Luther Adams' Strange And Sacred Noise for Percussion Quartet. Score and parts. Duration: 70 minutes.

'Noise - complex, aperiodic sound - touches and moves us in profound andmysteriousways. Strange and Sacred Noise is a celebration of noise as a metaphor for turbulent phenomena in the world around us, and a gateway to ecstatic experience.

Grounded in the elemental violence of natureand theself-similar forms of linear fractals, this music is a convergence of sonic geography and sonic geometry. Each piece in the cycle is conceived as its own distinct and separate sound world, evoking the immediacy and presenceof aplace.

These soundscapes are inspired by and dedicated to composers who have explored strange new worlds of sound.' - John Luther Adams
