A slide show I put together for a Music History class.

John Adams' "On the Transmigration of Souls" is meant to be a "memory space" - a place to be free of media influence and opinions - for the 9/11 attacks. I thought this was an effective way of creating that space. So free your mind and watch the 5 ish minute portion of this composition with the addition of pictures.

from wikipedia:
On the Transmigration of Souls (2002): This piece commemorates those who lost their lives in the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. It won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Music as well as the 2005 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Composition. Adams was the first composer to have earned the latter award three times, having previously won the award for El Dorado (1998) and Nixon in China (1989).
