MIT saves a December void of underground musical events by hosting Florian Hecker and Terry Riley.
By David Cooper.
Florian Hecker. At the MIT Chapel, Cambridge, MA, December 3, 8 p.m., free.
Florian Hecker is one of the most prominent noise musicians recording today. He’s currently an artist-in-residence at MIT, where he will be performing a new piece, Chimerization, in the beautiful MIT Chapel. The show is free but requires an RSVP. I believe it is filled up as of now, but it still worth a try to get in.
Terry Riley. At the MIT Kresge Auditorium, Cambridge, MA, December 15, 7:30 p.m.
Legendary minimalist composer Terry Riley will be performing a new piece with MIT’s Gamelan Galak Tika gamelan orchestra. The piece will utilize voice, electronics, keyboards, and gamelan. Tickets can be purchased here.
