These performances were carried out by DOM center and were a part of
the LONG HANDS 2 festival in memoriam Nikolay Dmitriyev 1 - 10 October 2005.
Terry Riley was the last one to perform. He played piano with a great concentration

But you know, guys? I was disappointed to see a hall half packed. HALF PACKED!!!!
Russian reality is really morbid in sense of cultural progress and awareness of the public.
I concluded that only about 1000 people in Russia have ever heard of Terry Riley

Plus I've been to performances by Sachiko M
and Otomo Yoshihide
