The Accidental Music Festival returns to Urban Rethink to present a performance of Terry Riley's seminal work In C, often cited as the first major minimalist work. The piece features a group of musicians (in our case a mixed ensemble of 12 players) performing a series of 53 musical ideas, each player moving through the sequence at their own pace. The melodies and rhythmic riffs flow in and out of sync according to the whims of the players, chance, and inspiration, so the piece can take anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours. The mood can become meditative, thrilling, and even ecstatic; it's never the same twice so you'll have to hear it for yourself!
In conjunction with the performance, there will also be a silent auction of prints and other small art pieces by local visual artists, with most items priced at $50 or less. The artists will donate a portion of the proceeds to presenting the 2nd annual Accidental Music Festival this November. Details about the festival will be announced at this event, so be the first to hear all about it!
The Accidental Music Festival is a marathon festival of concerts and educational programming sponsored by the Timucua Arts Foundation 501(c)3. The festival is primarily dedicated to presenting modern and contemporary music of high artistic quality by living composers and engaging the community in a dialogue about the value of artistic, creative, and avant-garde music.
