Inuksuit Previewed in The New York Times

Venture out from the ferry terminal on Governors Island on Saturday afternoon, and you are likely to bump into at least one of more than 60 percussionists who have fanned out across the Hills and may seem to be engaging in eccentric behavior. No need to be alarmed: Performances of John Luther Adams’s “Inuksuit” are always an immersive experience, as man-made rhythms intertwine with the sounds of nature.

“For the past five years, Governors Island, a short ferry ride away from Manhattan, has been home to this rambunctious festival, which presents free afternoon concerts of top-tier musical performers.”
