Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. - In C
Artist: Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
Title: In C
Label: Squealer Music (www.squealermusic.com)
Format: CD, 57 minutes
This is a cool Japanese/rock take on minimalist composer Terry Riley's "In
C"-where Riley uses strings and mellow horns, these two bands use electric
guitars, banshee wails, electronic drones and amazing percussion. It's
really a brilliant interpretation of Riley's work, and they go on to create
an "In D" and "In E" that use "In C" as a launchpad, but take it in a much
heavier, noisier direction. They've even gone so far as to reproduce the
original "In C"'s cover art, with some significant modifications. This is
definitely not the Kronos Quartet here-this collaborative project is much
wilder and disturbing than any Riley-commissioned project I've ever heard.
