Terry Riley walks his own path in music and always has. He belongs to
the camp of individualistic artists who run, not walk, when they perceive
there are too many people doing the same thing they are. He's one of the
founders of minimalism, he's famous for his all-night concert/improvisations
and for his general countercultural outlook on music and life. One of
Riley's most famous works is "In C," where the note C is repeated in any
number of variations and combinations.
