Riley first came to MIT in 2011, when Gamelan Galak Tika premiered his White Space Conflict for gamelan and electronics. This year MTA and CAST celebrate Riley’s 80th birthday with a concert spanning the depth and breadth of his work and influence. The concert includes new works commissioned and performed in his honor by pianist Sarah Cahill; first-ever improvisations by Riley & Eviyan (featuring Iva Bittova and Gyan Riley), a spectacular multi-saxophone version of the classic Poppy Nogood, and a reprise performance of White Space Conflict.
