  • Music with Roots in the Aether, Part 7: Terry Riley

    1975. USA. Directed by Robert Ashley. Riley is a Minimalist composer whose early endeavors were influenced by Karlheinz Stockhausen—until he crossed paths with La Monte Young. Riley became involved with the experimental San Francisco Tape Music Center, where he worked with Pauline Oliveros and studied with Pandit Pran Nath, the Indian classical vocalist who also taught Young and Marian Zazeela. During the 1960s Riley held his famous All-Night Concerts, during which he improvised until sunrise using an old organ harmonium and a tape-delayed saxophone. 120 min.
