St Mary's Church, Upper Lake, Battle
A Mrs Y's special on-off event as part of Battle Festival and again we visit St Mary's Church, Upper Lake, Battle as one of Mrs Y's favorites take on this iconic piece.
Mrs Yarringtons Music Club presents THE ZEN BICYCLE BAND versus Terry Riley’s "IN C" .I can’t really tell you what is going to happen as no-one knows! Terry Riley's minimalist classic ͞"In C͟" is instantly recognizable, despite the fact that no two performances of it can ever be the same. "In C" score is made from 53 musical modules, fragments of musical material and melodies. The players move steadily through the fragments, although they can omit them as well, and the modules can be played faster or slower than written. How many times each is repeated, and how long a performance lasts, will vary each time the piece is played.
The Zen Bicycle Band music is a freeform flowing stream of connectivity between three individual players created entirely spontaneous. They connect with the audience, in harmony and also directly to the source of imagination and inspiration. Every performance is unique to that moment of creation. The music that flows from the ZBB is surprisingly organised and profound. Itis not mindless unstructured noodling. Itis effortless music without the mind interfering. They would not normally follow any kind of score or set pattern but with their intuitive music and Terry Riley’s free-flowing score this will be a one moment in time musical event.
