HJF presents "In C"
The Halifax Jazz Festival presents ‘In C’ / Anteater Thursday, March 30, 2017 at The Carleton Music Bar & Grill in Halifax. Show starts at 8:30pm, $7
‘In C’ is a modern minimalist piece of music. It consists of 53 musical phrases played sequentially, each repeated an arbitrary number of times before moving to the next. The piece typically lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.
Terry Riley's performance notes for ‘In C’ say that the band should have around 35 musicians. Riley also says you can have fewer. Join bassist Casey Thompson as he gathers together some of Halifax’s finest musicians together to present this epic piece.
