Terry Riley – Mescalin Mix (1960-62)

“Mescalin Mix” is a tape-loop recording from 1960-62, partly inspired by Terry Riley‘s experience with mescalin and the work he did with Richard Maxfield. For this recording, the tape-loops extended out Riley’s window to a wine-bottle spindle in the yard; it was composed for choreographer Anna Halprin’s the Three-Legged Stool.
