Atomic Clock Music Events essay-on-time.com reviews
Born in 1935, American composer Terry Riley launched what is now known as the Minimalist movement with his revolutionary classic In C in 1964. Any number of players perform a series of 53 musical fragments--repeating, looping, pausing, listening, and shifting registers at will to create a shifting, hypnotic musical tapestry. http://www.retailmenot.com/view/superiorpapers.com
The players interact, listening to each other and finding inspiration for the way they will play in their own imaginations and the behaviors of the musicians around them. A constant pulse of high C's keeps the ensemble together.
In this unique performance, the audience shares in the interaction: musicians are distributed throughout the BMoCA galleries, and listeners are encouraged to explore this world of sound by walking through it, experiencing the different personalities and interactions--perhaps even inspiring them! A computer-controlled audio system distributes the electronic pulse, and mixes sound between the galleries.
