20:00 Terry and Gyan Riley (USA)
Minimalist pioneer Terry Riley was among the most revolutionary composers of the postwar era; famed for his introduction of repetition into Western music motifs, he also masterminded early experiments in tape loops and delay systems which left an indelible mark on the experimental music produced in his wake. Deeply influenced by the mantra-like repetition of Indian classical music as well as the modal scales and improvisation of jazz, compositions such as 1964's In C and electronic recordings like 1969's A Rainbow in Curved Air became landmarks of 20th century music, greatly influencing developments in electronic music as well as psychedelic/progressive rock. Subsequent works such as Shri Camel (1980) and The Harp of New Albion (1986) focused on just intonation. Riley has collaborated extensively with the Kronos Quartet, with notable works include the Grammy-nominated Salome Dances for Peace (1989) and The Cusp of Magic (2008). Riley's 21st century works include piano concerto Banana Humberto (2008), long-form synthesizer composition Aleph (2012), and collaborations with his son, Gyan Riley, such as the 2017 film score Hochelaga, Land of Souls. In Moscow Terry Riley will perform with his son Gyan.
