HCMF10 Temko: Riley
Shri Camel has become a rare artefact of Terry Riley’s work. Composed after the landmarks In C and A Rainbow in Curved Air, the piece continued his pursuit of classical minimalism while honouring a growing influence from Indian music. It is notoriously hard to perform: replicating Riley’s score, written for a specifically modified keyboard used to achieve ‘just intonation’ tuning, is no easy feat. In this unique concert, musical polymaths Temko break Shri Camel’s golden rule, ditching the synthesiser. Instead, they play new instruments built for the occasion to achieve the precise tunings and uncanny beauty of Riley’s original.
