This documentary touches on every aspect of his work, from politically conscious operas to beatific meditations like ‘The Dharma of Big Sur’. Adams also talks revealingly about his working processes – ‘getting the music to do what it wants to do’ seems to be a priority. Visually, the film is striking too: Adams lives in California and the state’s grandly infinite skies reflect the composer’s wide-open receptiveness perfectly.
