Terry Riley is back in Berlin with his son Gyan for a very special residency of 2 nights at Berghain for a rare performance of 2 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 2 albums in front of a standing audience in a limited capacity room, for a better immersive listening experience on the world famed sound of the world famed club. 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 2 concerts will see the duo explore original material, to create a new and more modern interpretation of the masterpieces.
