Event Details

Minimalist legend and world music iconoclast Terry Riley joins forces with MIT's Gamelan Galak Tika in a world premiere of a new work for voice, electronics, keyboard, and gamelan.

Terry Riley revolutionized music with In C, (1964), which launched minimalism into public consciousness. He went on to redraw the musical map through his ventures in Indian music, jazz, just intonation, and electronics.  Collaborations with the Kronos Quartet have brought his work to a new audience; today, at 75, he continues to explore new territory by composing for Balinese gamelan. 

Also on the program, new works and improvisations by Riley for piano and pipe organ and special guest Gyan Riley.

7:30pm, Kresge Auditorium.
