Holy Mountain

11 year old child prodigy channeling Terry Riley, Phillp Glass, Laurie Spiegel. Swirls of chiming xylophones, keyboards, piano and percussive loops. A fantastical musical adventure in minimalism. Miss Information's pick for album of the year.

**1. (5:14) Cheerful plinky piano and strings in repetitive swirl
**2. (2:51) Dizzy swirl, dense layers, organ
**3. (6:30) Pretty chiming xylophone, fun improv, less dense, fewer layers
*4. (6:30) Mildly dissonant strings, 1930s film noir soundtrack. Frightening, bombastic
*5. (5:47) Piano and flute arpeggios, synth wobbles and sonic zooms
*6. (5:27) Quiet messing around on pedals turns into a huge wall of sound loops and layers galore. Abrupt end
7. (2:08) Quiet pedal and synth noodling
***8. (13:32) Piano percussive looping. Keith Jarrett meets Steve Reich. Loops slowly grow more frantic. Strings enter halfway through to drive climatic end
***9. (16:54) Water keyboard loops, bright shimmery fast loops on top zip up and down
