About the Author

John Luther Adams was born in Meridian, Mississippi, and attended the California Institute of the Arts before moving to Alaska in 1978, where he lived until 2014. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music and a Grammy Award for his orchestral composition Become Ocean, which was premiered by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra in 2013. He is also the author of Winter Music: Composing the North and The Place Where You Go to Listen: In Search of an Ecology of Music. Since leaving Alaska, Adams has lived in New York City and in the deserts of Mexico, Chile, and the Southwestern United States.
