Catch what the New York Times calls "the ultimate environmental piece" and what a New Yorker reviewer calls "one of the most rapturous experiences of my listening life" (!) when John Luther Adams' jazz performance Inuksuit comes to the Sutro Baths.
RichmondSFBlog brings news that Adams' massive performance piece will begin in San Francisco's favorite ruins at 1 p.m. on Saturday. Featuring up to 99 percussionists, the outdoor performance will, according to the event's website, "create a harmonious marriage of music and geography that allows the audience to create their own experience as they move within the vast performance area."
So basically, attendees are encouraged to roam around the baths during the performance, experiencing the music from different vantage points. Pretty cool, right? Previously performed on a tundra in Alaska, Saturday's event is presented by SFJazz and directed by Sō Percussion founder Doug Perkins.
