Terry Riley’s In C (Maqam Rast Remodel)



Premiered on 6 April 2018 as part of Irtijal Festival, Beirut.

“As part of his ongoing research into the potential to translate the fundamentals of Arabic music into contemporary compositional practices and vice-versa, Allami debuts a solo, electronic, rendition of Terry Riley's seminal minimalist composition, retuned and remodelled in the Arabic Maqam Rast, using a custom-coded micro-tuning software patch Allami has been developing with London-based programmer Charles Matthews using Max for Live.”
