Terry Riley

In C

1500 HUF
An early piece of the endlessly repetitive minimalist style Terry Riley's In C was written in 1964. It is unique in terms of collision between the then fashionable open form aleatory and the hypnotic, slowly transforming repetition of rhythmic-melodic patterns, which in a few years became a central element of the mainstream American minimalism.

In other words, In C created a wedge between two eras of musical composition by unifying techniques that were thought never to be unified, and the unusually liberal and soft approach to performing a written score, which allows a large number of people to participate freely, and get the insider's experience, or just listen, and still get the insider's experience in a different way. The psychedelic effect of repetition and polyrythm was discovered here, and a possibility of using a sophisticated technique to get music that everyone can enjoy.
