Matthew Herbert collaborates with the young European music collective stargaze to create his version of Terry Riley 1964 seminal minimalist work 'In C', sampling their live acoustic patterns, digitally processing them before blending the results back in with the instruments.

Pantha Du Prince revisits his collaboration with the percussion ensemble The Bell Laboratory to weave chimes, bells and his trademark electronic pulses into Riley's composition.

Meanwhile, the performance is immersed in psychedelic visuals created live by the Joshua Light Show (resident artists at Bill Graham’s Fillmore East during the late 1960s, who also performed at Woodstock, the Newport Jazz Festival and other historic events of that era.)
