Nick Luscombe presents Terry Riley in concert, recorded in a chandelier-lit underground chamber of a 700-year old salt mine outside Krakow, Poland as part of the Unsound Festival. Nick travels 100m under the surface of the earth to watch one of the great American composers of the 20th century. Riley’s performance was a varied set encompassing atmospheric electronics, melodica, piano and devotional vocals alongside his son, the guitarist Gyan Riley.
