Way Out Yonder is the second live release from Terry Riley & Gyan Riley, the father-son duo comprised of iconic American composer and minimalist pioneer Terry Riley and his guitarist/composer son, Gyan. We’re proud to bring this work to vinyl for the first time with this double LP release.
The album is comprised of spontaneous improvisations and compositions by both Terry and Gyan, captured during three performances in Canada, Japan, and the US. The recordings feature Terry Riley on piano, voice, melodica and electronics, with Gyan on electric guitar. Audio was mastered for vinyl by Dave Gardner at Infrasonic Mastering. The album artwork was created by Barbara Falconer, who also painted the cover of Riley’s landmark 1978 release, Sri Camel.
The release will be available on LP and digital formats beginning July 12, 2019. Pre-order your copy here.
