In C

A large portion of our 2011 show, especially the second half, revolves around the key of C.  This is another subtle nod to our friend John, whose last name Seay is pronounced like the letter “C.”  When you hear the resolution after the pit feature and end of the show, it is, of course, a C.

There is a famous aleatoric piece of music titled “In C” by Terry Riley.  While not part of the source music for our production, this video contains a performance of the piece that is interesting in its instrumentation, and visually reminiscent of Sufjan Stevens’ art-doc The Brooklyn Queens Expressway – from which we took most of our source material.
