A pioneering work in minimalist composition, Terry Riley's 'In C' continues to challenge and beguile, entice and confound.
Africa Express musical director Andre De Ridder recently decided to re-visit the piece, using it as a framework to compare Western avant garde to African music.
In a performance at London's Turbine Hall, a host of musicians helped to interpret the piece. Brian Eno, Damon Albarn and more took part, with the results partially online now.
Due to be the focus of a full documentary, a snippet has been placed online.
Check it out below.
The physical release of 'In C' is forthcoming through Transgressive.
