John Luther Adams
is an intriguing and inspiring composer. I have been reading his writing The Place Where You Go To Listen – In Search of an Ecology of Music slowly and enjoy its simultaneous clarity and depth:
"Science reminds us of the miracles of the larger world to which we belong. Art reminds us of the essential connections of the spirit that we share with all beings and things. Science examines the way things are. Art imagines how things might be. Both begin with perception and aspire to achieve understanding. Both science and art search for truth."
