First televised on KQED in April 1969. It was a highly effective synthesis of abstract visuals—chiefly Arlo Acton's spherical sculptures of glittering titanium—and a soundtrack on which Terry Riley played hypnotically repetitive music on a soprano saxophone together with the feedback from two tape machines. The Dilexi Series , originally broadcast over KQED in San Francisco in 1969 and 1970, represents one of the first efforts to present works created by artists specifically for television....

The nontheatrical environment of Serramonte Shopping Mall provided an immediate audience for Six Phrases in Real Time that was unfamiliar with the inside workings of TV and modern dance.

This technique invests the film with a sense of familiar honesty...
