Terry Riley

Brudenell, PPY and Dictionary Pudding present Terry Riley. 

It’s possibly hard to do justice in words to the influence of Terry Riley on so much adventurous music that has emerged over the past half century. Take his legendary In C, a simple piece of musical genius that still resonates as loudly in impact today and perhaps achieving more widespread influence than ever currently since its first recorded appearance in 1968. Add in his sublime minimalist keyboard recordings such as Shri Camel and A Rainbow In Curved Air, his early tape work, his collaborations with Pandit Pran Nath, John Cale, La Monte Young. Terry will perform in a duo with his son Gyan, who has a growing discography of his own that includes releases on labels such as John Zorn’s Tzadik and has worked with Zakir Hussian, Dawn Upshaw and many others.
