Terry Riley is back in Berlin with his son Gyan for two nights and a rare performance of two of the most iconic works of the legendary minimalist: A Rainbow in Curved Air and Persian Surgery Dervishes on synthesizers and guitar. The father and son duo will interpret the two albums in front of a standing audience in a limited capacity room, for a better immersive listening experience.
Terry and Gyan have been recently touring the world together, performing mostly new pieces and improvised sessions on piano and guitar, creating a beautifully crafted language, an embodiment of Terry Riley’s original intention in composition and writing. But this special set of two concerts on November 24 (A Rainbow in Curved Air) and 25 (Persian Surgery Dervishes) will see the duo explore original material, to create a new and more modern interpretation of the masterpieces.
The concerts were postponed to November 2021.
