This summer the Los Angeles New Music Ensemble is proud to present a summer series based on time, minimalism, and electronics. The program is centered around Terry Riley’s masterpiece of the minimalist movement, In C. In C has been lauded throughout the world as a seminal work in the history of contemporary music. Yet more importantly, the truly transcendent nature of the piece when heard live is something that we believe should be experienced by everyone. When played with skill, precision, and passion, Terry Riley’s visionary set of 53 musical cues becomes a transformative performance, and it is these attributes that we intend to bring to Southern California this summer.
We are also pleased to present two pieces especially commissioned for this series by Patrick Conlon and Dan Formidoni, and two older works by Evan Ziporyn and Dr. Marvin Lamb.
