“An ecstatic, hypnotic piece of minimalism with sacred overtones.”

~The Guardian 

“mesmerizing and graceful…supremely exhilarating…

"this album is a musical journey for mind and body — both a stimulant and a sedative. It offers many engaging stopovers, from an oasis of calm where the pulse evaporates, to Led Zeppelin-like headbanging reminiscent of “Kashmir”to moments where the cello loops interleave with the sweet delicacy of Vivaldi. If you have a spare hour to let this singular, hypnotic music wash over you, the world might just seem a little brighter.”


"The intrepid cellist Maya Beiser has reimagined the piece ingeniously. The result is transfixing….moody and introspective, but also, by the end, quietly uplifting."

~ The New York Times

Cellist and producer Maya Beiser's latest solo album reimagines Terry Riley’s epic In C as a series of ever-evolving cello loops and drones. In her multi-cello solo version, the C string - the cello’s lowest, most resonant string - forms the depth and sonic architecture of the album. Enveloped by live drumming by Shane Shanahan and Matt Kilmer, Maya creates a hypnotic, rapturous soundscape that re-envisions this epic minimalist masterpiece.
