Contents: The place where you go to listen --
Drums of winter --
Pointed mountains scattered all around --
The circle of suns and moons --
The circle of winds --
Deep and distant thunder --
River with no willows --
One that stays all winter --
Drums of fire, drums of stone --
Where the waves splash, hitting again and again.
Responsibility: John Luther Adams.
