Additional Information

Brooklyn-based contemporary music series, Darmstadt “Classics of the Avant Garde” celebrates its birthdays with a singularly defined interpretation of Terry Riley’s game-changing 1964 composition, In C.  This year’s concert will be held in the room where it was first performed eight years ago, at 70 North 6th Street in Williamsburg, currently the home of Public Assembly.  Described in 2007 by The New York Times’s Allan Kozinn as “the most vital, audacious, and energizing performance of the score” he had ever heard, Darmstadt's curators invite electric guitarists, singers, and electronicists, alongside orchestral instrumentalists—

all key players of the Downtown and Brooklyn new music scenes—and anchors the ensemble with a drummer (Kid Millions of Man Forever and Oneida this year).  The results are raucous and dynamic, all the while remaining completely faithful to Mr Riley’s original score.  Backed by live visuals, Darmstadt’s In C has become an annual tradition on the contemporary music calendar.
Confirmed musicians for the upcoming performance include David Grubbs, Jim McHugh, Shahin Motia, Zach Layton (guitars, basses), Dana Lyn, Alex Waterman, Conrad Harris, Pauline Kim (strings), Joe Drew, Gareth Flowers, Sam Kulik, Christopher McIntyre (brass), Jason Cady, Miguel Frasconi, Matt Mottel, Amnon Wolman (keyboards), Katie Eastburn, Nick Hallett, Megan Schubert (vocals), Rebekah Heller, Jeff Tobias, Daniel Perlin (woodwinds), Kid Millions (drums), David Van Tieghem (percussion)

“Unquestionably the founding work of minimalism in musical composition, Terry Riley's In C (1964) challenges the standards of imagination, intellect, and musical ingenuity to which "classical" music is held. Only one page of score in length, it contains neither specified instrumentation nor parts.”—Oxford University Press

Darmstadt: Classics of the Avant Garde is the new music series led by Nick Hallettand Zach Layton, a program of ISSUE Project Room.
