In C Remixes: A fresh new way to look at almost-fresh music.

You WISH your rehearsals were like this.

You WISH your rehearsals were like this.

Recently, by means of getting totally lost on the internet, I came across a fantastic music project, based off of Terry Riley’s “In C,” which is an interesting, yet contemporary, classical piece of music. The project pulls together a bunch of talented musicians from around the world (including one of my personal favorites, Zoe Keating). What the project does, simply enough, is develop “Remixes” or “Variations” on the piece. Here, check out the teaser video;

I can’t wait for the project to go live (which, according to their site and twitter page, is tomorrow). You can preorder their CD from their site, which I’ll provide a big massive link to at the bottom of this post, and it will be available for digital download tomorrow. If you’re impatient, listen to some of the demo’s they’ve put up in their download section here. Hey, look! A Zoe Keating remix!

    Wow, I never thought I would actually get excited about a Terry Riley piece. I was impressed by the list of remixers they've got; I'm interested to see what David Lang does with it, and what Nico Muhly does. (By the way, if you're into this kind of thing, Muhly wrote a fantastic piece called Mothertongue which I highly recommend.)

      They have some HIGHLY reputable names remixing the music… the free
      downloads are great, but my favorite has to be the one used in the teaser
      video (i believe it was done by an artist who's other work is featured for
      free download).
