You simply have to relax and trust in that flow, let the music fill you and believe that it will take you places. Because it will.

The thing about In C that is so incredible to me is that it is completely radically different every time it's played. In C is a byproduct of its performers and location to the extreme. The performers have control over how many repetitions they give each cell (little chunk of repeated music), they have control over how loud, how soft, what octave, how slow/fast, and yes, how harshly/smoothly they play.
