A 16-Month European Project (01/09/18 to 31/12/19) That Co-Finances:

  • 3 International Meetings: Trieste (November 2018), Athens (December 2018), and Rostock (November 2019).
  • 3 Youth Exchange Programs: Six days of music and technology workshops in connection with the In C project and the collaborative platform (Dunkirk, Athens, and Marseille).
  • 3 Performances: Concerts using the LoLa system will be held after each workshop, with the last performance in Marseille serving as the closing event and featuring a delegation of musicians from each participating country (N.B.: Each partner may enhance events with financing outside of Erasmus+).
  • 3 Works of Intellectual Property:
    A collaborative digital platform that integrates the LoLa system.
    A database of instrumentals so In C can be played with diverse accompanying instruments.
    Documentary work summarising the project.

In C, The Artistic Motif of the Project

  • In C is a musical piece composed by Terry Riley in 1964.
  • In C is one of the first minimalist compositions and a foundational work of American repetitive music.
  • In C is a free and flexible collective musical work with a unique compositional structure that has been described as “the global village’s first ritual symphonic piece.”
  • In C is the cornerstone of the workshops and exchange programs for the young musicians and the closing event will feature a collective public performance of the work.
