**50th anniversary, limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on transparent vinyl** Terry Riley's influential minimalist piece In C is available again on vinyl, as a limited deluxe edition. As one of the first minimalist compositions and a
masterpiece of this genre it's a response to the modern music that
dominated the scene in 1968. The piece inspired a lot of famous
composers, like Philip Glass and Steve Reich. In C consists of
repeating cells and different rhythms, loosely based on the musical
structures he had heard and loved in north African music. 53 short
musical phrases is where the compositions is made of. The thing that
makes In C so enduring is that, once all concept is stripped
away, it's a seriously hypnotic piece of music. For listeners with a
sympathy for minimalism it's a wild and impressive work, full of energy.
