Video: The Soft House Presents Terry Riley's In C

Last week David Carter shared a quality recording of The Soft House's performance of Terry Riley's In C, and now Guy Werner has just passed along his video documentation.

Guy Werner had 6 cameras set up throughout The Soft House, as he controlled them via his rig in the loft space. These shots were also used during the set, projected onto walls to give the audience multiple perspectives of the many musicians involved.

Below is a 10 minute piece on the evening that Guy put together, providing nostalgia for those who were there, and an idea of the magnitude for folks that missed out.

After the click view the full 55 minute video of the entire piece, also with thanks to Guy.

If you are still looking for names of people who were there but you don't have listed, Amy of In Every Room is on the left of the picture at the top of the post, I think.
