John Luther Adams has been in the studio with Nathaniel Reichman mixing his latest album. Cantaloupe Music has set out in part with Dubway to turn one of John's sound installations into an album to experience at home. The 10 channel installation has previously been heard in Church and art gallery performances but never before released to the general public.
Mixing the Album proved a unique challenge for Nathaniel and John as they had to translate the immersive experience of the instillation into an equally immersive experience for the home listener. The 6 hour long piece will give the listener full immersion while using head phones and in surround sound.
Cantaloupe is working on a unique packaging to accommodate the full length of the piece. This is one of John's entirely electronic pieces, it is unusual for him to work exclusively in the electronic domain.
