This coming Monday, May 3, 2021 on KBOO from 8-10 PM A Different Nature will present a rebroadcast a recording of Terry Riley's "In C" live at KBOO from September 29, 2014. Performed as part of that year's celebration of In C's 50th anniversary, and co-hosted by Daniel Flessas and Andy Hosch, the evening featured a sixteen member ensemble recruited with the help of Michael Stirling and Ron Blessinger, and nicknamed (by Daniel) the "In C Monkeys":
Diane Chapman-cello, Ron Blessinger & Michelle Alany-violins, Chiran Wharty (sp?) & Kathy Fors-accordions, Reed Wallsmith-alto sax, Doug Haney (sp?)-bass sax, Christopher Corbell & Dan Duvall-electric guitars, Jeffrey Ashton & Peter LeClair-classical guitars, Hillary Smith-tabla & melodica, Paul Beck-cimbalom, John Berensen (sp?)-voice, Ann Adams-voice & human theremin, and Mitchell Falconer-piano.
During the second hour, we'll listen to another interesting rendition:
