Welcome to Airstrive Music! In celebration of the re-launch of this website in February 2014, Steve Riley is pleased to post his first original music video for Airstrive Recordings’ first CD release, “Through Cells” (available in both CD purchase and download formats). We hope you enjoy the video for “Singing Through Cells”, the song which closes the full-length recording.
Airstrive Music is pleased to announce that marimbist Kevin Bobo (Indiana University) will be recording Steve Riley’s marimba solo “Transference”. Look for Bobo’s recording to appear on a future CD recording of Steve Riley’s compositions, and sound clips from the recording will appear in the PUBLICATIONS section of this website in late summer 2014.

The recording, entitled “Eye [Compositions, Vol. I]” will contain many of his most popular works, including 1999 PAS Competition 3rd Prize Winner, “Eye Irascible”, “Storm Warning and Dance”, and 1988 PAS Competition 1st Prize Winner, “Declarative Stances”. A unique facet of this full-length recording is that it will include 4 live premieres. (more…)
