Artist: RILEY, TERRY
Title: Last Camel In Paris
Format: CD
Label: Elision Fields
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Throughout the 1970s, legendary American composer TERRY RILEY toured regularly in Europe, performing solo organ concerts. In October 1978, Rileys personal technician CHESTER WOOD built a stereo digital delay out of an ancient computer he had procured from DON BUCHLA, and the subsequent tour was the maiden voyage to try it out. Rileys specially modified two-manual Yamaha YC-45D portable combo organ had a Just Intonation setting and allowed him to feed stereo signals to the digital delay. The Yamaha had been manufactured with single mono output, but now with the modification it had a separate output for each manual eventuating in four channels (two live and two delayed). During a residency as a Fellow at DAAD in Berlin, Riley fine-tuned the delay speeds and experimented with different stereo combinations so that by the time of this Paris concert, the tape delays worked well with the tempos he was using. This all came on the heels of the Shri Camel recording Riley had just made in San Francisco for CBS. The musical materials of The Last Camel in Paris are second generational, belonging to the Shri Camel family while manifesting their own distinct shape and flavor. Includes never-before seen archival photographs." - Elision Fields.

Title: Les Yeux Fermés & Lifespan
Format: CD
Label: Elision Fields
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"After changing the world in the late 60s with In C and A Rainbow in Curved Air, legendary American composer and father of minimalism Terry Riley abandoned tape manipulation and written composition to concentrate on longform keyboard cycles and improvisations. In the early 70s, while in Europe, he was invited to create scores for two films. The first, in 1972, was Joel Santonis Les Yeux Fermés, a feature-length art film that instantly became a cult classic by virtue of its never having screened in the USA. The second, Lifespan, directed by Alexander Whitelaw in 1974, featured Klaus Kinski. Both soundtracks were released in limited editions on LP and have long been out-of-print. This first-ever CD release of these two classic Terry Riley soundtracks - both on one disc - was remastered from the original tapes, the hypnotic songs sounding far superior to the below-average vinyl pressings." - Elision Fields.

Title: Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band All Night Flight
Format: CD
Label: Elision Fields
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
TERRY RILEYs classic "All Night" album originally released as part of the Organ of Corti Archive Series. "The live recording of Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band All Night Flight taken from a 1968 concert titled "Purple Modal Strobe Ecstasy with the Daughters of Destruction" is the perfect trigger for what anthropologist Jean Rouch called The Strange Mechanism, the trance state which most of this decades electronic music aspires to induce. The immediacy and the spectral filigree-the dervishes summoned during Rileys nocturnal concert-have been faithfully preserved on this CD."-Richard Henderson, The Wire. Packaged with new cover art and photography.
