For Terry Riley my most frequently played album through out the years must be his Harp of New Albion. Damn I love that microtonal style of playing the piano when done right, and in my opionion he's definitely superior to LaMonte Young, Michael Harrison, and whoever else did that kind of thing. Most of the others mentioned in this thread are also favs, although I never really liked Philip Glass.

A couple of more unknown gems that completely floored me when I first heard them where The Lost Jockey s/t 1983 cassette, or Michael Gordon album Rushes (minimalism for 7 bassoons; how could that go wrong?)

A bird has a left wing and a right wing but they’re just for flapping. The bird brain is in the middle.

I figured as much, but I just discovered it this morning.

John Adams' The Chairman Dances is wonderful and worth checking out as is his Shaker Loops.

When I hear Eleh, I'm reminded of Minimalism as a process as by Pauline Oliveros and Alvin Lucier ("I am sitting in a room").

I agree, Terry Reily is a pinnacle of Minimalism as a genre.

The Charlemagne Palestine is nice, since it's not as harmonically busy as say Phillip Glass. The fluidly accelerating tempo is nice, and I wonder if that's a significant alteration from other traditionally-recognized Minimalism (I think it might be).

For me, the word Minimalism also brings to mind Maryanne Amicher, (though that's a darker version!) and obviously Cage.
Lately I've been occasionally enjoying those minimalist frequency sound healing tracks, as well as William Basinski's Disintegration Loops.

Cool thread!
