North Indian Raga with Terry Riley

Share

Category:

Type:

Country:

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 17/08/2020 - 22/08/2020
    
This workshop will be based around non-academic, practical sessions in singing North Indian Raga. There will be instruction in voice culturing and in training the ear to hear specific microtones inherent in the Raga melodies. We will progress from singing and tuning up long tones to learning melodic fragments that compose the raga melodies, and then on to learning traditional "bandesh's" or traditional compositions. All of this progress will be made by learning to copy phrases taught by ear.

We'll examine raga structure and how a raga develops through the progressive series of sections - "alap", "vilambit", "drut". Various talas - rhythm cycles that frame the ragas - will be explained and practiced. We'll examine how improvisation works in Indian music, and a method of how to improvise in these raga melodies will be given. As a composer, Terry will discuss and demonstrate how he has incorporated raga into his compositional activities.

The workshop is open to all levels of ability - all are welcome who have a passion to use their voice as an expressive musical instrument.

Composer and performer Terry Riley is one of the founders - arguably the founder - of musical minimalism. His early works, notably In C (1964), pioneered a form in Western music based on structured interlocking repetitive patterns. The influence of Terry's hypnotic, multi-layered, polymetric, brightly orchestrated Eastern-flavored improvisations and compositions is heard across the span of contemporary and popular music.

Born in California, Terry studied at San Francisco State University, and the San Francisco Conservatory before earning an MA in composition at the UC Berkeley, studying with Seymour Shifrin and Robert Erickson. At UC Berkeley, he met La Monte Young; together they worked with the dancer Anna Halprin. During a sojourn to Europe 1962-64, he collaborated with members of the Fluxus group, playwright Ken Dewey, and trumpeter Chet Baker, and was involved in street theater and happenings. In 1965 he moved to New York and joined La Monte Young’s "Theater of Eternal Music." 1967 was the year of his first all-night concert at the Philadelphia College of Art and he began a collaboration with visual artist Robert Benson. An influential teacher was Pandit Pran Nath, a master of Indian classical voice; Terry appeared in concert with him as tampura, tabla and vocal accompanist for over 25 years. Terry continues to perform in concerts of his music and of Indian classical music, as well as conducting raga-singing seminars. He also appears in concerts with Indian sitarist Krishna Bhatt, saxophonist George Brooks, guitarist Gyan Riley and with virtuoso Italian bassist, Stefano Scodanibbio.

Terry joined the Mills College faculty in 1971. There he met David Harrington of the Kronos Quartet. Their long association led to 13 string quartets, the concerto The Sands (1990), the multimedia choral work commissioned by NASA, Sun Rings (2003), and The Cusp of Magic (2004) with pipa. The Kronos recording of his epic five-quartet cycle, Salome Dances for Peace was selected as the Classical album of the year by "USA Today" and was nominated for a Grammy.

The Palmian Chord Ryddle, a concerto, was premiered in May 2012 by electric violinist Tracy Silverman and The Nashville Symphony led by conductor Giancarlo Guerrero. A subsequent performance occurred at Carnegie Hall. Recent works include Transylvanian Horn Courtship (2008) for string quartet doubling on Stroh instruments, Universal Bridge (2008) for pipe organ, the violin concerto Zephir (2009), and SwarAmant (2012) for violin, guitar, and tabla.

Past commissions include: the orchestral Jade Palace (1991) for Carnegie Hall’s centennial celebration, premiered there by the Saint Louis Symphony and Leonard Slatkin; June Buddhas (1991) for chorus and orchestra, based on Jack Kerouac's "Mexico City Blues," commissioned by the Koussevitsky Foundation; the chamber vocal work What the River Said (1997) by the Norwich Festival; the piano piece in just intonation The Dream (1999) by the Kanagawa Foundation; the concerto for piano and electro-acoustic band Banana Humberto 2000 (2000) commissioned by Musical Traditions, Inc., the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, and Emory University, and premiered and toured by Terry with the Paul Dresher Ensemble; Bruce’s Traveling Machine (2005) for cello and tape, commissioned by the artist Bruce Connor; The Heaven Ladder, Book 6 (Night Music) (2006) for piano 4-hands, commissioned by Sarah Cahill and premiered by Sarah Cahill and Joseph Kubera; Loops for Ancient-Giant-Nude-Hairy Warriors Racing Down the Slopes of Battle (2006) for the Crash Ensemble; the triple concerto SolTierraLuna (2007), co-commissioned by the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia and the New Century Chamber Orchestra of San Francisco.

The beauty of a boundless (éperdu) gesture

(a call dedicated to Annie Le Brun who helps us understand the deep beauty of the word éperdu) 

The world became uglier. Wars with widespread of ruins and dead bodies, skyrocketing poverty, forests and oceans harmed, this is nothing new.

The unprecedented ugliness is the result of a much more violent epidemic than plague was: the commodification of the nearly entire world. An attack on everything from which (economic) value can’t be gain, a war against passion and unreasonable life. A war against the desire and the bodies without which to think is not possible.

If for long art was an exception to the rule, innumerable art forms being dwelt with an indomitable desire, today its so called “contemporary” form is more and more difficult to distinguish from the pseudo-aesthetics that our eyes and ears suffer with the pervasiveness of commodity. Our bodies, our cities and our contemporary art museums, every where in the world, exhibit the same objects, the same images, the same brands, the same signs, making our planet a huge childish leisure park or a huge shopping center worthy of an airport. Instead of dwelling the world poetically, we are in transit, dead men on leave, consumable and disposable items. We live in a market-positivity empire where objection, struggle, friction, conflict must be banned. But, as William Morris tells us, ugliness is not flat, it acts upon man and deteriorates his sensitivity, so that he will not even feel the degradation, which prepares him to descend a step.

Thinking doesn’t lie outside the globalisation of mediocrity. It abjectly suits to our emptinessconsumption era. The consequences are truly terrifying. Bodies are the first to suffer, petrified in the icy waters of egotistical calculation, they lie mutilated, reduced to their smallest market value, their capacity to generate profit. They have only one freedom left, to obey. One horizon, to get used to ugliness. 

In the eye of the economic terror storm, which is the worst climate disaster, COME OUT the meteorologists of desire in places where we do not expect them. These are the ferocious poets, the women and men which dimension is up to their excess, and whose irrepressible gesture, in trying to liberate imagination with a long, boundless and reasoned disordering of all the senses, to follow Rimbaud, frees us from centuries of domestication and insane resignation.

This gesture lead us to a beauty to reinvent. It is the link between the erotic necessity of our bodies and the critical necessity of poetry and images.

These are the gestures the festival wish to grasp.
