Keep St. Louis Strange And Wonderful

In C 6

A bit more from the performance of Terry Riley's In C Tuesday evening in the Old Post Office Plaza. Keeping St. Louis strange and wonderful is an essential but difficult task.

The video at the end was taken with my iPhone. The sound quality leaves a lot to be desired, mashing everything together so that you can't hear the subtle individual parts. It's here just to give a general sense of the performance. If you like this stuff, you may enjoy another favorite Riley piece, A Rainbow In Curved Air.

j'aime bien ces concerts dans les rues (place), cela donne de la vie à la ville, la rend plus sympathique. et la petite vidéo est très agréable.

Love the second shot of the band in the Post Office Plaza, looks fantastic with the last rays shining in the windows, and I definitely think Terry Riley is doing his bit to keep St.Louis strange and wonderful haha!
