Become Ocean

perfect sky and water of ocean
If you want an out-of-the ordinary musical experience, listen to “Become Ocean” by the composer John Luther Adams. This is the piece that won Adams the 2014 Pulitzer prize for music (yes, there is such a thing!).

If you’re up for a musical adventure, check it out. Have a listen. But really listen. Set aside 42 minutes and 14 seconds, lie down, and put on a pair of headphones or earbuds. Most importantly, set aside all notions of what music is or what you expect it to be.

Simply immerse yourself in the music without expectation as it washes over you.

Simply…. Become Ocean.
