Brooklyn Raga Massive: Terry Riley In C
8 minutes | United States | 2018 | Experimental, Music
Directed by Ian Cinco
Brooklyn Raga Massive (BRM) is a collective of forward thinking musicians rooted in Indian classical music. This video, featuring a 7.5 minute excerpt of music from their recent album release Terry Riley In C on Northern Spy Records, showcases the various members of the collective in their element. From morning rituals, riding the subway and eating dhosas, to meeting in the park, playing music and backyard bonfires, we see BRM in a heartwarming slice of daily life. Indian classical music itself is a soloistic form involving 3 or 4 musicians at most. In C, Terry Riley's canonic, minimalist masterpiece, is composed for any number of any instrument, so it was an accessible way to bring together the entire collective to play exquisite music: with sitar, tabla, bansuri, vocal, violin, oud, cello, bass, hammered dulcimer, guitar, dragon mouth trumpet, cajon and riq. The video reflects the music and captures the community spirit of BRM. Terry Riley himself wrote after watching the video, "The extraordinary joyful humanity of the group shines through."
Brooklyn Raga Massive is a collective of musicians living in Brooklyn. The director Ian Cinco also lives in Brooklyn. Most of this music video was shot in Brooklyn with love for the borough.
