Riley, Terry – A Rainbow in Curved Ait 180g (LP – New)


Keyboard virtuoso Terry Riley started experimenting with different instruments in the ’50s. One of his electronic music landmarks is his third album A Rainbow in Curved Air. Through the use of overdubbing, he recorded all the instruments to feature on the title track. The composition consists of three movements, each representing another part of his musical influences. As the song progresses, it’s structure goes through frequent changes. It’s an colorful, psychedelic, atmospheric and revolutionary song. The second track consists of a loop of saxophones and is the dreamy and calm opposite of the title track. Fans of electronic music, such as Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, would love this record. Taking inspiration from Hindustani classical music and jazz techniques, Riley’s masterpiece influenced many musicians, from the likes of Brian Eno to Emeralds.
