Release notes

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a new remastered edition of the wonderful ambient and experimental work by composer Terry Riley, “A Rainbow in Curved Air”. One of the great modern musical works, Riley composed this influential piece utilising tape loop recording in 1967, performing every instrument himself.

A pioneer of modern music, Riley’s all night performances of his work were ground breaking experimental events and influenced composers such as Philip Glass. Released as an album in 1969, “A Rainbow in Curved Air” brought Riley to a wider rock audience. The British band CURVED AIR took their name from this work and PETE TOWNSHEND of The Who was inspired by Riley’s music to create the seminal songs “Baba O’ Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again”. “A Rainbow in Curved Air” remains a highly influential creation
