John Luther Adams Four Thousand Holes for Piano, Percussion (Vibraphone and Orchestra Bells) and Electronic Aura.

Composed in 2010 and dedicated to Stephen Drury.
Duration: 32 minutes 30 seconds.

Four Thousand Holes is my own effort to re-appropriate and reclaim for myself something of my own musical past. For the first time since my days as a rocker, Ive chosen to restrict myself to major and minor triads - those most basic elements of Western music (both pop and classical). But Ive tried to assimilate them fully into my own musical world. Approaching these simple chords as found objects, Ive superimposed them in multiple streams of tempo, to create darker harmonies and lush fields of sound. In recent years, Ive been fortunate enough to form a close musical partnership with Stephen Drury. Steves extraordinary gifts inspired me to explore expansive forms and textures (similar to those of my orchestral music) with only one or two performers, In essence, Four Thousand Holes is a concerto. To begin I composed the score for the electronic tracks. Steve recorded all of the individual chords that occur in the score. I took these recordings, time-stretched them, reversed their envelopes, and knit the reversed sounds together with their original decays. The resulting waves of sound I layered into ten independent tracks to create the virtual orchestra. Next I composed the Piano part, articulating the peaks of all the electronic tracks simultaneously - a feat of coordination that demands considerable virtuosity from the pianist. Finally I composed another multi-layered part for metallic Percussion sounds that I think of as sparks emanating from the Piano. In Four Thousand Holes, strong musical currents fall and rise, again and again, as points and lines are juxtaposed with heavy, hammered chords. The mix of live and electronic sounds blurs the distinction between musical figure and ground. As in much of my recent music, I conceive of the entire piece as a single complex sonority that evolves slowly. As we settle into the sound, we begin to hear longer lines, counterpoint, and maybe even the occasional trace of a tune . - John Luther Adams
