Photos from Inuksuit at The Contemporary Austin

Nothing could be more meditative than forty percussionists playing John Luther Adams in a garden.

Apparently, The Contemporary Austin agrees. In an event co-produced by Steve Parker and Brandon Bell, on Sunday September 22nd at 2pm forty percussionists —  including students from Rice University, Texas A&M University, Texas A&M—Corpus Christi, Del Mar College, UT San Antonio, and Sam Houston State University — gathered at Laguna Gloria for the Austin premiere of John Luther Adam’s Inuksuit. Audience members wandered around the garden as the performance took place, experiencing the sound and space in different ways with each new listening location. It is my absolute joy to present these peaceful photos of the event, snapped by talented NaB contributor, composer and photographer Steve Sachse.
