"Like many of Adams's previous works, In the white silence is an example of his concept of 'sonic geography, ' through which he attempts to realize the notion of music as place and place as music, and reveals his obsession with the 'treeless, windswept expanses of the Arctic.' The title of the work thus points to Alaskan landscapes in a general sense."--Notes, p. 4-5.
