In C (Terry Riley)

Post by Jeepee » Thu Nov 26, 2009 11:28 pm

Hi,

I stepped on this piece called In C, by Terry Riley. Found that funny, and well dedicated to Live, so I made one midi clip for each of the 53 patterns (see the score in attached file), plus the 4 notes used to set the tempo (which you can use or not, according to the author, in fact Live keeps the tempo going very well... so it's up to you).

What you get here is the score + the Live project with the 53 clips on one track. Read the score, duplicate the instrument, choose your VSTIs/AU/Live Instruments and effects and here you go !

Built with Live 8.1, I have not tested this with other versions. See if it works and enjoy.

Thanks for leaving a comment. I didn't expect Terry Riley's music to please millions of Live users, but well, if you enjoy it, i'm pleased to have worked on it.

Enjoy !

Sorry, didn't know i had two accounts. I'm Jeepee as well as Saturnin79. By the way, it seems somebody has done a M4L patch with this piece, if you're interested (can't remember where i saw that), but you're probably right : lots of fun with an APC (i had...). By the way, let's go for an add : there's a fantastic version of In C which you can get on itunes, for example, played by Bang on a Can. As these guys might sell less than Madonna, maybe they'd deserve a few bucks ?

Better late than never...

there is a realtime audio programming language called chuck (see http://chuck.cs.princeton.edu). A guy wrote a program to generate a version of In C with it. I have been tinkering with it for a while and wondered whether it could have been done in Live. I don't know how I missed this thread but now I'm intrigued again.
Live 9.1 <> occasionally Reason 4.0.1 <> Reaper.latest! <> Windows 7 on a bespoke Intel Q6600 <> ASUS P5E <> 8GB RAM, M-Audio Delta 2496 and that's it.

Great idea and job with this - a hugely prescient work, but I'm afraid to say many of the clips are incorrect in terms of how the score has been read. For example grace notes should not add to metric time (clip 1 should be 3 beats in total not the 4.5 beats in this project), ties seem to have been ignored and also some dotted rhythms have been rendered incorrectly (e.g. clip 8 should be 6 + 4 + 4 beats not 2 + 2 + 2). Not that this (dare I say) really matters - the essence of the piece and its creative drive remains and I do like the played in quality to many of the clips. Quantization should be set to 1/8 as far as i can tell from score instructions. I'm rebuilding using follow actions so that the pieces can run generatively, I'll post if of any interest.
Thanks again.

Well a quick and dirty version (with instructions) is available here.

http://www.miltonline.com/2013/09/09/all-at-in-c/

Hit scene 1 and they'll tumble through, I've weighted the follow actions to have on average more repeats on shorter phrases which makes sense musically. You can intervene, urging on any stragglers and holding back any clips forging too far ahead. You can of course ride volumes, edit instruments and send out effects to your ears' content. You can always set clip 53 to - rather than stop return to clip 1 so it lasts forever, with clips lapping each other - adding another dimension to the piece. If Follow actions was more sophisticated or I had time to render in Max the clips could behave more intelligently by grouping together, dropping out and changing velocity more responsively as per score instructions, but it actually works quite beautifully as is, which is a testament to the power of Riley's concept.
Thanks to Jeepee, I've kept many of his/her clips as I like how he/she played them, but am also thinking of crowdsourcing midi and audio clips from the interwebs when the Earth slows and there's enough hours in the day.
