terry riley - The Last Camel In Paris (Theatre Edouard VII, Paris, 10 November 1978)
Using sound materials derived from Riley's Shri Camel recordings for CBS, The Last Camel In Paris is a document of the composer's 1978 performance at the Theatre Edouard VII, in the French capital. This concert came after Riley had refined a stereo delay system for solo organ, based on a modified Yamaha YC-45D converted to accommodate four channels - two live and two delayed. The end result of this conversion was a solo performance that stretched sounds far beyond the parameters of normal solo work, incorporating loops, repetitions and a broad stereo field into a one-man show. At its best Riley's playing resembles a tangled up, futurist reinvention of a Bach toccata, particularly by the time we reach the cascading dexterity of the seventh piece in the set which refers back to baroque harmonic architecture while embracing the re-organising (pun intended) potential of electronic manipulation. As ever with this series of releases - stunning music.
