Composer John Luther Adams was in Cleveland in September 2014 for a short residency that included presenting two of his major non-concert hall works: Inuksuit, for 99 percussionists, was performed in the Lake View Cemetery on an unexpectedly gorgeous early autumn day; and Veils and Vesper, a ten-channel immersive sound environment, was installed at St. John's in the Ohio City neighborhood. In this video clip , Adams talks about the process behind his "most rigorously mathematic and most unabashedly sensuous piece," as well as the importance of the surrounding environment to the experience of the installation.
