In C Remixed

Listen to a new take on minimalist icon Terry Riley’s “In C” by the Grand Valley State University New Music Ensemble and some of the most imaginative DJ's, remixers and composers around.  Insistent and propulsive, In C is based on a series of 53 interlocking phrases, repeated any number of times, that merge to form an ever-changing tapestry of sound.  On a recent 2-CD collection of remixes, Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lang, ambient/hip hop master DJ Spooky, cello innovator Zoë Keating, the ubiquitous genre-hopper Nico Muhly, and many more took the raw tracks from the GVSU New Music Ensemble, and played with them on their laptops.  For this New Sounds, we’ll hear some of their results.
