Terry Riley @ Big Ears Fest 2010 (more)
terry riley

Composer Terry Riley is perhaps an unlikely addition to the Animal Collective-curated ATP happening in the UK in May. Maybe not, considering the minimalist influences in Animal Collective's music, though it's still be weird to see the 75-year-old Riley, who tends to play organ or keys live, billed under Big Boi.

You can see the composer at a more typical setting - (Le) Poisson Rouge - tonight (Jan 29th) with son Gyan Riley, who's a skilled guitarist, composer and improviser in his own right. Tickets are still on sale.

The pair will be celebrating two new albums: Gyan's solo guitar release Stream of Gratitude on Tzadik Records and Terry Riley and Gyan Riley: Live on Sri Moonshine Music. Parts of both are streaming on Gyan's website.

More upcoming Gyan Riley shows (some with Terry) including February 6th at Pianos, are posted below...

i dont like the gyan solo parts very much but i saw em in 09 at LPR and they were great. almost passed out from the Intense Raga. i should probably listen to an album of his past persian dervishes.

This is the most boring ATP lineup...ever.

Also, I worked an event Riley played at an auditorium, and it was pretty dull. Old hippies sitting around pretending they are still 'hip with it'.

terry riley is like the opposite of hippie music its pretty obviously 20th century classical and you are pretty obviously a big stupid person who types really stupidly and annoyingly like the words you say are typed in a way that are just naturally annoying i bet you sound really annoying irl

@5:46 I don't know, there sure were a lot of hippies there.
Does that mean you can't listen to it now? What a shame.

Bring LaMonte Young, that way it can be a "Battle of the Beards" contest as well!
