Africa Express 'In C' (ft. Damon Albarn) (interactive video)
Published Nov 28, 2014As previously reported, Damon Albarn's Africa Express project teamed up with artists like Brian Eno and Nick Zinner for a 50th anniversary reworking of Terry Riley's In C.
Now, the music has been paired with an innovative performance video courtesy of the Tate Modern. It features commentary and performance from the artists, but also offers the options to explore the Tate's minimalism collection (to match the iconic minimalist musical piece), as well as footage from Bamako, Mali. There are also opportunities to change the camera angles or isolate particular instruments.
You can choose your own artistic adventure in the clip below.
Africa Express Presents… Terry Riley's In C Mali is out now digitally via Transgressive Records, with CD and vinyl to follow on January 26.
