With his revolutionary classic work In C Riley launched what is now known as the Minimalist movement in 1964. He has continued to produce an extensive body of music, working across disciplines with artists like choreographer Anna Halprin, filmmaker Bruce Conner, and playwright Michael McClure, as well as with musicians like the Kronos Quartet, Pandit Pran Nath, La Monte Young, and many others. For this performance, Riley will present a number of works for piano, keyboard, and voice.
