58. radiOM.org - A Concert In Honor of Terry Riley on his 50th Birthday [0.949% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert In Honor of Terry Riley on his 50th Birthday Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 125 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA In San Francisco in 1964, the world premiere of Terry Riley's "In C" spawned a movement that literally changed the face of modern music. "In C" was the first popular piece of what has come to be known as minimalist music, which typically consists of slowly evolving repetitive patterns. Since then, Riley's compositional style has gone through several incarnations. His contribution to modern music has always been a source of stimulation. In 1985, on Riley’s 50th birthday, KPFA honored this important composer with a live broadcast of a concert at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall, by the Kronos Quartet, featuring all of Riley's music for string quartet, as well as an improvised keyboard performance in just intonation by the composer himself.

Pauline Oliveros has been a pioneer in the practice of meditation pieces for performers and "audiences", and has developed the concept of Deep Listening, a kind of collective improvisation involving zen-like focus on sound production and interaction during performance. The result is group composition in real time that takes on a heightened clarity and power. Tonight she introduces a new work with virtuoso improvisers India Cooke, a jazz violinist well-loved by Bay Area audiences, and Karolyn van Putten, formerly a member of Bobbie McFerrin's Voicestra.
