often cited as the 1st minimalist composition, ‘in c’ remains a hugely important & influential work in terry riley’s extensive cannon.

riley composed the piece in 1964, performing it for the 1st time in san francisco later that year with an ensemble that included fellow innovator steve reich within its ranks. it has the hallmarks that came to define musical minimalism: triadic harmony, a slow rate of harmonic change, a steady pulse & the use of repetitive patterns.
