Music

Riley's baby-faced son Gyan played about 20 minutes of guitar music written by his dad, virtuosic displays in the classical-guitar tradition, with deft zigzags and finger-picked harmonies, like flamenco played with Buddhist pliability instead of Mediterranean bravura. In "Missigono," Terry Riley applied his homely voice to mirthful verse that would've pleased Allen Ginsberg. "four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten/Judeo-Christianity, Muhammad, Zen," Riley sang, obviously savoring the tone koan. —Rob Tannenbaum
