TERRY RILEY AT 80 - IN C PLUS 3 - June 2015
We're putting this thing on in Brighton:
In celebration of Terry Riley's 80th Birthday, Lost Property presents a performance of his masterwork IN C, along with lesser known Riley pieces and new compositions inspired by him.
'In C' - Adam Bushell will lead a 25 piece ensemble to perform this minimalist classic. Written in 1964, it has been performed by ensembles as diverse as The Shanghai Film Orchestra and Acid Mothers Temple. The piece comprises 53 score fragments for an unspecified amount of players - as riffs and motifs overlap the resulting music achieves an ecstatic, transcendent quality.
'You're No Good' - performed by Duncan Harrison.
Terry Riley created this piece in 1968 - a 20 minute re-arrangement of The Harvey Averne Dozen's soul tune 'You're No Good'. "Two reel to reel tape machines twisting in and out of sync amongst passages of heavy proto-synth oscillation, ring modulation, tape delay and echo."
'Octobeast' - an original composition by Andrew Greaves inspired by Riley's Persian Surgery Dervishes.
Daniel W J Mackenzie will be premiering a new Riley inspired composition.
