Terry Riley In C
In this workshop we will attempt to translate this minimalist classic into movement. Written by American composer Terry Riley 50 years ago, In C consists of 53 riffs that can be performed by any number of musicians on any instrument. They proceed through the score at their own pace, creating a spontaneous and rich counterpoint.
Translating it is a risky and somewhat stupid idea: we won’t have enough time, visual rhythm has different rules to musical rhythm, and there is no equivalent of harmony in movement, but along the way we might discover something and hopefully it will be fun.
While musical literacy is not necessary, it wouldn’t hurt either, and a superficial knowledge of the original piece would be useful.
