    Evan Ziporyn, Music Director. Minimalist legend and world music iconoclast Terry Riley in a rare Boston-area appearance, joining forces with MIT's own Gamelan Galak Tika in a world premiere of a new work for voice, electronics, keyboard, and gamelan. Terry Riley revolutionized music with 1964's seminal In C, which launched minimalism into public consciousness. He went on to redraw the musical map through his ventures in Indian music, jazz, just intonation, and electronics. His numerous collaborations with the Kronos Quartet have brought his work to a new audience; today, at 75, he continues to explore new territory by composing for Balinese gamelan. Also on the program, new works and improvisations by Riley for piano and pipe organ.
