Joshua Glenn says: "Singer-songwriter, music critic and theorist Franklin Bruno has discovered that if you play Terry Riley's pioneering minimalist song 'In C' (1964) at the same time as Marc Cerrone's influential 1976 disco song 'Love in C Minor,' the results are mind-bending!"

    This actually disturbed the cats. Normally they’re oblivious to whatever’s playing, from classical to heavy metal to rap to acapella. They just fled the room.

    This definitely cries out for heavy clouds of Heavy Duty Fruity.

    I think I prefer the duet to either alone.

    I wish you (or they) had done the work for me to sync them up…I’m lazy.  Sounds like LCD Soundsystem, actually…But maybe that’s just me being lazy again.

    Just imagine a manic, science-and-history-obsessed doppelgänger of Scott Walker (c. 1968/9) singing over this, and it sounds just like Simon Bookish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-SYtAdDf10

    I just keep expecting them to synch up at some point and they never do. It’s like an awesome track with a xylophonist who’s out of time.

  6. This mesmerized me completely – no surprise since I am a HUGE Terry Riley fan, and also have a guilty pleasure streak for disco. I can’t believe I never thought of this.  I am literally throwing this a DJ set very soon.
