The extended drum pieces in Earth and the Great Weather are, in a sense, Adams' homage to that earlier period in American percussion music and a return to his own roots as a drummer. Of these quartets, Adams says: "This is the first time I've let go and enjoyed the sheer physical power and exhiliration of drumming on this scale." The pieces contain no improvisation, but are rigorously scored, using extensive metric modulations and "layers of different rhythmic velocities, which amount to several superimposed tempos.
