Gene Pritsker writes of his new project: "The Rite of Spring was premiered on the 29th of May in 1913 at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, France. The ballet caused quite a stir with its sexual and unconventional movements as well as Stravinsky's unique and avant-garde music. It has been reported that the performance caused a riot, where people were literally out of their seats jumping and pounding one another. I always regarded this as the first mosh pit of the 20th century. As a teenager studying music, I was strongly influenced by 'The Rite of Spring'. I listened to it over and over until what sounded like noise at first, revealed itself to be the most incredible piece of music I have ever heard. I have always wanted to reinterpret this music through my own experience. Using the instrumentalists in my band Sound Liberation I composed a brand new compositions heavily inspired by the original. This new look at 'The Rite' interprets the various elements of this music using my eclectic methods and ideas: writing hip-hop and jazz songs, using improvisational techniques (like the ones used in African and Indian music), incorporating DJ and electronic elements and employing the various genres and techniques that have been developed since the premiere of this masterpiece."
