Minimalist music at midnight in Highland Park

Hermon resident and musician Paul Bailey is organizing a midnight performance tonight of composer Terry Riley's "modular improvisatory masterpiece" called "In C" at Juanita's Restaurant in Highland Park. Musicians are still welcome to join in the free performance (see details below). If you are wondering what "modular improvisatory" music or "In C" is all about, it's best just to listen and watch the video of this 2006 performance in Vancouver.

“In C” is shaping up to become this century’s new Messiah (via steve layton at Sequenza 21) — except wedon’t need no stinking Christmas to trot it out and have a go. So why not get into the spirit, and do your bit for communal music-making? To give you a head start, here is a PDF of the score, so you can spend a little time beforehand brushing up on your chops. Bring your friends and a music stand if you can. If you are planning to play please RSVP with your name and instrument at pbeinfo@gmail.com
