This Island Earth
Sunday December 16th, 2018 with PeterB
Today's sonic adventure features lots of long tracks, in long sets. And some new-ish (to me at least) finds. Plus a VERY over-due full play of 'In C, Mali'. VERY COOL!

Today's adventure features a very over-due full re-play of Terry Riley's masterpiece. In the form of 'In C, Mali'. Some new (to me) finds. Mostly lots of juicy looong sets, and looooong tracks. From east to west and pole to pole. Sonic wall-banging. How we like it! PLEASE DO hit us up on the Interactive Thingy (it is right over there ==>). We'd love to hear from you!!

Let's just start in Mali. With some old faves. To freshen our ears. And get ready for things to come...

A full play of Terry Riley's "In C", Mali style. Put down whatever it is you are pretending to do RIGHT NOW. And become absorbed. This has not been played in full in almost 3 years, so it is waaaay over-due. We will correct that situation right now.

It is a TOTAL MIND BLOWER. Dusting off your very best headphones is strongly recommended.

Glad you are listening David, and making your ears wiggle in interesting ways! Yeah, both of the Sarathy Korwar recordings are really terrific!! Tempting to just play out both, in full. ..... hmmmmmm ..... maybe some day. ;^) BTW, Rendition of Alice Coltrane's Journey In Satchidananda on now.
