Minimalist music pioneer Terry Riley is pleased to be working with his longtime friend Gloria Cheng on the 25th anniversary of Other Minds, the Bay Area festival showcasing experimental sounds.

The concert features Cheng, who has collaborated with Riley since 1990, and Riley in the Bay Area premiere of “Cheng Tiger Growl Roar,” a work for four hands. She also performs the jaunty and whimsical “The Walrus in Memoriam,” the haunting masterwork “The Heaven Ladder, Book 7” and “Two Pieces for Piano,” which Riley composed in the late 1950s while at the University of California, Berkeley.
