This is truly one of my lifetime most favorite pieces of music!! Terry Riley takes me on an extremely colorful, endlessly fascinating journey. Unlike many of my sound inspired pieces which are usually 10 second slices of what I, as a synesthete see, this is a general gestalt of the bones of the entire “trip”.
Inspiration: Terry Riley. “Lifespan/ M(usic) I(nside) C(urved) E(ntrances).” 2007. Les Yeux and Lifespan. Elision Fields. | Length: 2:11 minutes; Musical Genre: Minimalism
Electronically generated tonal harmonic framework of musical phrases punctuated by a steady bumpy pulse. I find the repetition of the pulse very comforting.
