Moogfest Adds Terry Riley

MUSIC GURU TERRY RILEY JOINS MOOGFEST LINE UP, BRIAN ENO EP TAPPED FOR SPECIAL MOOGFEST PRE-RELEASE, LARGE OUTDOOR VENUE ADDED FOR MOOGFEST 2011

Terry Riley
Moogfest, the annual festival celebrating the vision of sonic pioneer Bob Moog, continues to expand upon its plans for 2011.

With the weekend of October 28-30 just over three weeks away, Moogfest is excited to announce that one of the most monumental and influential musical figures of the past century – the composer and performer Terry Riley – will be joining the Moogfest line up this year, presenting a special concert. Although he has chosen to perform mostly acoustic in recent years, Riley will present a rare concert of his legendary electronic keyboard music, including his remarkable A Rainbow In Curved Air, the visionary work which shaped and inspired the music of Pink Floyd, the Who, and countless others, including fellow Moogfest icons Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Tangerine Dream, and, of course, Brian Eno.

Riley's son, the outstanding guitarist, performer and composer Gyan Riley, will also join him in concert. Gyan's most recent work, Stream of Gratitude, was released on John Zorn's Tzadik label earlier this year.

Warp Records has announced the exclusive pre-release of Brian Eno's new EP, Panic Of Looking, at Harvest Records in Asheville during the Moogfest weekend, giving festival attendees the opportunity to pick up the new release before anyone else in the world. Eno will be attending Moogfest 2011 for the opening of his video installation, 77 Million Paintings. He will also be presenting an "Illustrated Talk" on Saturday afternoon during the festival.

With a growing fest comes a need for more venue space and so, Moogfest is moving outdoors with The Launch Pad at the Renaissance, located in the heart of downtown Asheville. Offering a large open air space in the lush atmosphere of Asheville in autumn, The Launch Pad at the Renaissance will host epic performances beginning in the late afternoon of each day and continuing into the evening.
