Galapagos Art Space, 70 N. 6th St, Brooklyn
"Darmstadt, the Classics of the Avant-Garde performance series at Galapagos, celebrates its third anniversary with a 2nd annual performance of Terry Riley's seminal classic "In C". Join hosts Zach Layton and Nick Hallett for DARMSTADT "Classics of the Avant Garde" as we observe our now-annual tradition of performing In C along with an "all-star" ensemble of instrumentalists, singers, electronic sound artists, and visualists. This is by no means a "traditional" interpretation of Terry Riley's 1964 work."
