Thinking about this piece today: 4th of July. It was clearly a beginning of our Red Desert duo, and not caring one iota if we programmed half-hour pieces. Rollin Hunt met us in the weird with his excellent video (those are my eyes!). We performed it at The Stone!!! in maybe 2009? I really want to do more works with video these days.
Red Desert ensemble and Radical Quiet, an Honors College course that cultivates presence and awareness through mindful experience of the arts, present Terry Riley’s IN C. Red Desert (Katie Porter/Devin Maxwell) will perform Morton Feldman’s Bass Clarinet and Percussion, Pauline Oliveros’ Bye Bye Butterfly and Devin Maxwell’s PH6. Afterwards, an all-star ensemble of Utah musicians and students will perform Terry Riley’s minimalist masterpiece IN C for an indefinite number of performers.
We are having a _GIANT_ book release concert in LA to celebrate the release of 4 volumes of scores from our Listen/Space commissioning project, along with 6 hours of recordings. Almost all of us will be there! Including: Quentin Tolimieri, Katie Porter, Devin Maxwell, Stephanie Richards, Phil Rodriguez, Kevin Farrell, Jonathan Marmor, Kristin Olson, Christine Tavolacci, Doug Barrett, Travis Just, Eric KM Clark, Andrew Munsey, Nathan Herrera and André Cormier. It will be stellar!! I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!
