Terry Riley represents a continuous flow of musical ideas, from "In C" to this enchanting rag that dances and circles and absolves humanity of all evil by turning all thoughts to a state of enlightened delight. My response was to fashion a particle animation "video mandala" that morphs from a "Lawrence Welk on acid" beginning through a rainbow in curved air. -John Sanborn
