Interesting post from Devin Hurd regarding a partial arrangement for guitar of Terry Riley's The Harp of New Albion. I'm not as enamored of that work as I used to be so a new version might inspire. Still, I can remember a year where my listening revolved around this work, Philip Glass' Music in Twelve Parts, miscellaneous Steve Reich especially Music for Mallet Instruments, Voice, and Organ, the Kronos Quartet playing Riley's Salome Dances for Peace, and La Monte Young's The Well-Tuned Piano. Blissful, one and all.
The idea of piano as harp influences my method of playing, as does the tuning from which the particular consonances and dissonances determine the emerging energies that flow through both instrument and performer.
