John Adams – Christian Zeal And Activity – The Knights Found Sound Project

Stream the found sound solo version Adventures In Soundscapes at

This soundtrack is a recording of found sounds(natural sounds, nature, object, soundscaping, etc) by me for The Knights Found Sound Project of John Adam’s Christian Zeal. There are various found objects such as ashtrays, cash register, cuckoo clocks etc, along with sound artifacts and white noise.

John Adams composed Christian Zeal and Activity as part of a larger work called American Standard. The piece is peaceful and reverential–not unlike a choral hymn. In the score, Adams encourages the players to add “sonic found objects” to the performance. Most ensembles use the recorded sermon originally heard on conductor Edo De Waart’s 1987 recording of the piece (see above video).

The Knights Found Sound Project and WQXR “found sound” for Adams’ piece with Sounda’s experimental found sound creation.
