Terry Riley & Don Cherry — Terry Riley Don Cherry Duo

   Terry Riley & Don Cherry — Terry Riley Don Cherry Duo  Terry Riley & Don Cherry — Terry Riley Don Cherry Duo  °    “Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
°    Minimalist composer Terry Riley premiered his work ‘In C’ in 1964, a big influence on minimalism in contemporary composition and on subsequent works by composers like Philip Glass, Steve Reich and John Adams. 1967’s ‘A Rainbow In Curved Air’ and its companion piece ‘Poppy Nogood And The Phantom Band’ — both mixing repetition, electronics and tape~manipulation — were often performed in marathon, trance~inducing performances, and Riley was regarded a cult musician in avantgarde rock music circles. This 2~CD set presents two radio sessions recorded 1975 in Cologne, newly remastered from the original tapes for optimal sound.

Unreleased sessions, carefully remastered, in this duo improvisation Riley’s organ intersections just define the geometry of the hyper~dimensional space where Don Cherry’s outwordly trumpet lives. Mantric and evocative, we could go on and on listening to the very same track all day long, it could last forever...
°     In 1975, pioneering minimalist composer Terry Riley and jazz trumpet cosmonaut Don Cherry joined forces for a magnetic performance in Köln, Germany. But they also recorded these incredible radio sessions: Riley’s swirling synth, droning and clairvoyant and prescient in its clarity, parades along with a triumphant Cherry, leaving behind trails of mystery and a sense of beauty in a larger, more universal form. We have a “Descending Moonshine Dervishes” lasting 32 minutes, a transcendent moment of improvisational experimentation and spiritual jazz. As Cherry’s physical presence slowly liquifies, “the lonesome foghorn blows” into some kind of misty dawn.
°     Sunrise of the Planetary Dream Collector follows the compositional model Riley had created earlier with his famous minimalist masterpiece In C from 1964. If any music was to represent quantum void, Terry Riley’s multi~layered organ patterns are definitely the most suitable candidate. They constitute a steady, everchanging background which is always and never the same at the same time, with epiphanic particles rising from the fluctuation and disappearing immediately after, just to reappear where you’d never have expected them to. This meeting between Terry Riley’s amazing all~night~flight organ styles and Cherry’s devotional trumpet work, is  staggering document and another fascinating uncovering of a key moment in the secret history of holy minimalism.   Label: http://www.soundohm.com/Fotka uživatele Ben Tais Amundssen.°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°_______________________________°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°
