Steve Reich

10 03 2007

I’ve recently become interested in minimalism, and where better to start than with Steve Reich? Most of his early works in the ’70s explored the possibilities of the studio, and so there are a lot of sound bits that loop over and over—not the best thing for live performances.

Hope fully this performance captures something of the Reich magic. It’s “Eight Lines,” performed by the 18-piece London Steve Reich Ensemble.
