Playful, eloquent, intimate and existentially cool, Terry Riley's Autodreamographical Tales is a musical dream diary - a no-holds-barred journey into the creative unconscious, rendered with a compelling joie de vivre by one of the most influential composers of our time. Each of these ten songs offers an uncommonly special connection with Riley, who narrates, sings and adds his signature minimalist piano filigrees to a sprawling narrative that can turn poetic, picaresque or downright kaleidoscopic. Backed by the ever-flexible Bang on a Can All-Stars, Riley challenges the ensemble by digging deep into a wide range of musical flavors that includes free jazz, blues, rock, pop and classical. And through the vivid storytelling of "Long Bus Ride" and "Zucchini" to the Jabberwockyan wordplay of "Science Fiction" and the raucous confessional "Cannabis," Riley also bends and stretches the very limits of language - conveying a multivalent message for these times that is pithy, positive and powerful.
