In C

In C is an infinitely evolving collaborative music performance for the web by Yotam Mann, Luisa Pereira, and Kevin Siwoff. A digital adaptation of Terry Riley's seminal minimalist work of the same name, performers control the pace at which their instruments advance through the composition while simultaneously hearing the other musicians’ choices in the virtual room. Consequently, different polyrhythms and sonic textures will emerge depending on the number of musicians participating live in the web app at any moment. The group of software artists have created this work with open sourced tools, some of which were authored by the members for the purpose of bringing novel forms of musical expression to the web, not the least of which include real time music collaboration and rich sound synthesis, treating the browser as instrument.
