Riley: The Harp of New Albion - Terry Riley. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей. Provided to YouTube by The Orchard Enterprises. The Harp of New Albion: I. Terry Riley - The New Albion Chorale, The Discovery. Riley adapted ten movements for The Harp of New Albion to a specially tuned piano on which he improvises each movement. Harmonics drift and float around repetitious phrases, creating an almost orchestral sound which is very similar to the effects created by La Monte Young on his Well Tuned Piano. The Bösendorfer grand piano resonates through the Academy of Music in Munich, Germany, where this majestic performance was captured. Although Riley improvises throughout The Harp of New Albion, each movement is defined by structural or composed elements. Astonishingly, the halo of harmonics drifting above his solo piano creates an orchestral sound, complete with horns, reeds, strings and voices. At times, the melodic interplay is ethereal, the micro-tonal relationships within the standing waves of sounds creating a haunting spectrum. Songs in album Terry Riley - The Harp Of New Albion 1986.
