AllMusic.com Rating: 5 stars; User Rating: 5 stars (53 ratings)
An album that redefines musical genres in the 20th century – patterning, minimalism, excitement, bursts of energy – its not for everyone, but if you appreciate originality and daring then this may be for you – in a fantastic 50th anniversary limited edition from Music On Vinyl in transparent vinyl. Cautiously recommended – for fans only.
Terrence Mitchell Riley (born June 24, 1935) is an American composer and performing musician associated with the minimalist school of 20th century music, of which he was a pioneer. Influenced by both jazz and Indian classical music, his music became notable for its innovative use of repetition, tape music techniques, and delay systems. He is best known for works such as his 1964 composition In C and 1969 album A Rainbow in Curved Air, both considered landmarks of minimalism and important influences on experimental, electronic, and rock music.
