A special edition of The Wire Salon with the composer of such landmark minimalist works as In C and Rainbow In Curved Air in discussion with The Wire's Tony Herrington.


What is minimal(ist) about Rainbow in Curved Air???

This was wonderful. Thank you for this interview. (Didn't want the only comment on here to be by the dickhole above.

Hi, it's so great to hear this interview. I must confess to being a big fan of Terry's work, so it's especially good to get more of an insight into his music interests and influences. This music has been very important to me, as being a musician myself, musically, it opened up a whole new world of possibilities to me. I cannot stress enough just how inspiring that is.
