As part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Minimalist Jukebox festival, one of the pivotal pioneers of minimalist music is celebrated during two daytime performances at the Hammer. On April 5th and 12th, The Industry, L.A.’s very own experimental opera company, presents an ebullient performance of Terry Riley’s groundbreaking minimalist composition, “In C.” The performance—a collaboration between The Industry and the INSPIRAVI Chamber Choir, the Ate9 dANCEcOMPANY, choreographer Danielle Agami, and a selection of solo singers and musicians—is a manifestation of the seminal musical piece, brought to life via an exuberant kinetic environment that features choreographed dancing alongside undulating inflatable figures, all set to music during an epic four-hour performance inspired by the minimalist masterpiece.
In conjunction with the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Minimalist Jukebox festival, The Industry, Los Angeles’ widely-acclaimed experimental opera company, presents an exuberant visualization of Terry Riley’s seminal minimalist composition, In C, at the Hammer Museum. Artistic Director Yuval Sharon’s conceptualization includes icons of everyday life in LA—undulating inflatable figures similar to those adorning car dealerships and other businesses—that will transform the museum’s courtyard into a wildly kinetic environment, while singers and musicians deliver an epic four-hour performance.
Visitors can experience the performance installation as they wish—for the duration of the piece or just dipping in for moments at a time. With the outdoor space as the permeable set for In C, the audience will be able to fully immerse in this landmark performance.
