In C by Terry Riley( )

142 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adrian Utley (Portishead) brings together an orchestra of electric guitar players to interpret Terry Riley's 'In C'. Written in 1964,'In C' is one of the most influential pieces of music from the 20th Century, it established minimalism as a music genre. In C's simple musical rules - 53 musical phrases in C and no duration - allow for infinite variations. Utley's impressive Guitar Orchestra is augmented by organs and a clarinet making for a mesmeric sound experience.The effect is an organic musical experience very much created in front of the audience both fragile and thunderingly uplifting"--Publisher's website
