By the early 1960s pioneering minimalist composer Terry Riley had just completed a MA in composition from UC Berkeley, begun working at the San Francisco Tape Music Center, along with Morton Subotnick, Steve Reich, and Pauline Oliveros, among others, and had started to compose prolifically. Though his first “proper” album would not be released for several years, in 1967, Riley’s compositional career was well underway and his craft becoming fully realized. Collecting three key early pieces from Riley, recorded at home in San Francisco, as well as live in concert at UC Berkeley and on radio in France, this is an essential part of the Terry Riley universe and some of his most celebrated early works. Containing deconstructed samples of a Chet Baker’s rendition of Miles Davis’ “So What”, “Music For The Gift” is a disquieting tape work that dissolves slowly and beautifully. “Mescalin Mix” is one of Riley’s earliest tape works and features recordings from his home. Finally, “Concerto For Two Pianists And Five Tape Recorders” was recorded live at UC Berkeley in 1960 and features Riley’s friend, La Monte Young on piano. Crucial early experimental and minimalism from a true innovator.

This classic minimal music album is now available again on vinyl for the first time since the 70s. Californian composer Terry Riley’s In C, first issued on vinyl in 1968, is widely acknowledged as a Minimalist landmark that altered the course of twentieth-century music. His influential album A Rainbow In Curved Air, which appeared the following year, is a vivid fusion of rock and raga, jazz and psychedelia realised through overdubbing on an 8-track machine which had recently been installed at the studios of Columbia Records.

Experimental composer Terry Riley may have got hisstart playing in piano bars, and writing pattern piecesfor jazz ensembles, his greatest impact was upon theworld of electronic music. In particular, his thirdalbum: 1969's A Rainbow In Curved Air. The 40+minute record is an odyssey of improvisedexperimental sounds, prominently featuringjazz-inspired modal scales and cues from Indianclassical music. (Riley had made frequent trips toIndia in his youth and fell in love with the country.)Through the usage of then-revolutionary overdubbingand tape-looping techniques, Riley was also able toperform every instrument himself on the record,including electric organs, electric harpsichords, asoprano saxophone, and an Indian dumbec.A Rainbow In Curved Air was a revelation to critics,who heaped praise upon Riley, who had in essenceinvented minimalism as a music genre. The recordhas been cited as a major influence on the likesof Phillip Glass, Brian Eno, Arthur Russell, MikeOldfield, Giorgio Moroder, and numerous others,while the distinctly patterned organ lines of TheWho's "Won't Get Fooled Again" and "Baba O'Riley"were directly inspired by Riley's piece. The repetitiousminimalism of Rainbow also was integral to thedevelopment of future genres, such as ambient, jazzfusion, new age, progressive rock, and futurevarieties of electronic music. More than just arevolutionary record, Rainbow also represented onefinal burst of sunny, utopian energy, as the dark anddreary 1970s loomed overhead.
