What started as an ideology of purity of process, of music stripped back to its essentials, has become a grab-bag of ideas composers draw on when they want to create hallucinogenic textures of pulse-based sensuality, or to lull us into supplication with holy reverie.
I’ll be playing some Philip Glass at this Christmas concert “The Blue Gem Shining Amongst the Stars”. (Yes, Philip gets festive). It’s a charity concert raising money for a great cause, the Shelter for Trafficked Women run by the Salvation Army here in Sydney.
Entry by donation.
And if you’re into minimalist composer Terry Riley, we’ll also be playing “In C”!!
