Marking the 50th anniversary of Terry Riley's pioneering masterpiece In C, Tate Modern, Africa Express and The Space will launch an interactive online film Tate Modern and Africa Express present In C Mali later this month. Led by classical conductor André de Ridder, and produced by Africa Express, the first African version of the minimalist classic was recorded in Bamako, Mali in 2013 with local musicians. The film will feature a live performance of the work, intercut with iconic minimalist works from the Tate Collection.
