Terry & Gyan Riley 

American composer Terry Riley laid with 'In C' (1964) the foundations of a revolutionary movement in music: minimalism. His compositions, charachterized by crooked patterns, repetition and minimal variation, had a big impact on classical music, pop and electronic music.

 

Throughout his career, Riley blended influences from jazz music, West African percussion and Indian raga with his - initially rigid - minimalist recipe. His impressive oeuvre is a mind-expanding wonderland at the intersection of minimalist piano, tape delays and non-Western rhythms and sounds.

 

Together with his son Gyan, a guitarist who collaborated with Kronos Quartet, John Zorn and Lou Reed, Terry Riley will be playing at Cactus Club, after previous shows in Cirque Royal and Vooruit. A unique opportunity to see the grandmaster at work.
