Who Is This Bearded Man?

This is composer Terry Riley.

I’m told bearded California composer Terry Riley™ launched the ’Minimalist’ movement with the piece IN C in 1964. I’m further told his influence has been heard in the works of prominent composers such as Steve Reich, Philip Glass and John Adams and in the music of rock groups such as The Who, The Soft Machine, Tangerine Dream, Pete Wants Revenge and many others. But you already knew this.

On Monday, March 20, over 100 members of the CalArts community joins together to perform Terry Riley’s groundbreaking IN C at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

The Challenge:
Who is the bearded man shown in the photo above?

The Reward: The fourth person to e-mail the correct answer to contest@losanjealous.com wins a pair of tickets to hear Bearded Terry Riley’s groundbreaking IN C and a cup of Stallone® pudding to enjoy during intermission.

The Place, The Time: Walt Disney’s Haunted Mansion, Monday, March 20, 2006, 8:00pm.
