After changing the world in the late '60s with "In C" and "A Rainbow in Curved Air," legendary American composer and father of minimalism Terry Riley set aside tape-manipulation and written composition to concentrate on longform keyboard cycles and improvisations. In the early '70s, while in Europe, he was invited to create scores for two films. The first, in 1972, was Joel Santoni's "Les Yeux FermÃ©s," a feature-length art film; the second, in 1974, was Alexander Whitelaw's "Lifespan." Both soundtracks were released in limited editions on LP and have long been out of print. This first-ever CD release of these two classic Terry Riley soundtracks - both on one disc - was remastered from the original tapes.
