“It was never supposed to happen. No one was supposed to
reimagine Terry Riley’s A Rainbow In Curved Air—a piece of
music that, until now, has existed in its own class of expression.
No one was supposed to scale the perilous heights of the citadel
and come back with another document of the strange festival
scenes within. With the release of Nico Georis’s A Rainbow In
Curved Air it’s clear now that this piece of music is a place that
you can go to, a kind of astral sanctum that can be visited again
and again so long as you know the mysterious paths that lead to
it.
“Doing away with the production tricks used on Riley’s
original recording (just intonation, mirror image delay, half-speed
tracking of all lead parts) Nico Georis confronts the central seven
time theme with a new transparency that gradually complexifies
into astonishing Persian carpet displays of patterned musical
awareness. This is music of the plenum and not the void: it is
teeming with forms that behave in ways that recall descriptions
of elaborately jeweled DMT hyperspace; sonic shapes that are
driven by the pure uplift and force of infinite, unconstrained
autotransformation. In this way it is similar to the original but the
pace is way less manic, way more listenable as it rides forward
on a calm surge of dazzling zero point energy.
“The three other songs on the record are Georis originals.
“Vapor” is a moment of twilight abstraction, a plant music duet
that features Nico playing along with the plaintive washes
of sound produced by a cannabis plant connected to a Plant
Wave device. This song was composed spontaneously as it was
broadcast live over Nico’s Big Sur based pirate channel, Milky
Way Radio. Side B contains two remarkable songs, “Hot Slots”
and “777”, that are built mostly out of samples of slot machine
sounds. They are both lush holograms of hallucinated beauty
and convey something about the spirit of luck, abundance and
possibility.” —Matt Baldwin
