Programme Note
Terry Riley The Serquent Risadome (2014)
Composer Note:
The title is from a short futuristic tale I wrote some years back called The Autodaydreamographical Anteriopod using mostly made-up words. The tale was subsequently used in a piece that I performed with the Bang on a Can All-Stars entitled Science Fiction. The Serquent Risadome seemed like a good fit with the music of the new quartet.

The opening sentence of the tale is, "Not yet obvicacious or boliferant, it subsequated, or rather anteriorted down the mawg veering toward the location formerly known as Cherenefora, in a seemingly plispephine yet serquent risadome."

— Terry Riley

"Not yet obvicaceous or boliferant, it subsequated, or rather, anteriorated down the marg, veering toward the location formerly known as Cherenefora, in a seemingly plispephine yet serquent risadome."

— from the Autodaydreamographical Anteriopod

On Terry Riley’s “The Serquent Risadome,” commissioned by Carnegie Hall for the event, the focus was on the interplay between the quartet members and the way energies diverged, chased one another, collaborated — in an elegant quiet section — and, finally jostled in athletic competition.
