Terry Riley: World Minimal Music Festival 2015 in Amsterdam

American minimalist Terry Riley is the special guest at the 2015 edition of the World Minimal Music Festival in Amsterdam (April 8-12). Kids will perform his groundbreaking composition In C and he will perform with tabla maestro Nayan Ghosh.

Riley started experimenting with tape loops in the Fifties. He was a pioneer of the use of electronics in the Sixties. His A Rainbow in Curved Air album was hugely influential and is essential for any serious 20th Century avant-garde music collection.
