Product Description

Product Description


Riley is one of the founders of Minimalism. His music tends to be for soloist (usually himself) playing a barrage of electronic instruments. The works on this disc hail from the mid-seventies, when Riley began to dabble with Eastern modalities, mostly Indian ragas that strive for swara, a transcendental state reached through perfect pitch. Along the way, notes will clash and (to our ears) sound like performance mistakes. These are the product of Riley's overlapping Eastern modalities with Western modalities, often in the same measure. Riley travels farther afield in his music than other Minimalists do, but it's worth the journey. --Paul Cook

5.0 out of 5 stars This is good Feb. 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This music is very good. Listen to this album many many times. Hopefully you can find something new everytime you hear this album. Also, listen to Persian Surgery Dervishes. Listen to all of Mr. Riley's organ works - there is a wealth of content in this music. Deep listening, as Pauline Oliveros suggests - that is, listening to the music very closely and in every way possible, is the best way to hear this material.
Go get'em!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Riley's great Organ/tape loop albums Jan. 6 2011
Format:Audio CD
Riley discovered in the 1960's that adding a simple tape-loop playback delay system (kind of like a slow-motion reverb) to his live performances allowed him to play against 3 or four slightly older versions of himself. You could call this trance, or techno - I just call it amazing. This album, along with "Persian Surgery Dervishes" and "A Rainbow in Curved Air" are simply great, even many decades later. Very few modern practitioners of techno or trance achieve anything like the depth and long-lasting interest of these Riley records,

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Terry's very good albums. Oct. 20 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Once again, the peculiar genius of Terry Riley hypnotises us with his keyboard artistry. Being a fan of his since the seventies, I would consider "Shri Camel" one of his very good albums.
