This is wonderful. Reply @lucavigg Problem with Steve on the piano is that he's always dragging! But he's wonderful Reply HYPNOTIC Reply reminds me sim city 3000 music Reply @lucavigg You're so lucky. I do wonder how the musicians don't suffer from RSI though. Reply @dracainbloodly indeed Reply I'd like to see this performed while on shrooms Reply @MagicDolphinGO I don't think so… I'm a huge fan of both. Just different styles, not really better or worse in my opinion. Of course, if you don't like Glass, that's okay. Reply Wow, I'm jealous! Reply steve reich puts philip glass to shame Reply They were indeed a bit off at 1:54 . But it's ok, when you look at the complexness of the music… Reply EEEEEEk! The best part! Reply performance on Thursday 24th Sept at Cité de la Musique in Strasbourg, France!!!! I'll be there! I'm still langing! Reply I feel exactly the same ! Reply I think they might lose it a bit yeah. I'd like to say it's intentional but my other recordings don't include it! Reply Do they lose it a bit at 1.57ish, or am I imagining it? Reply as much as i love listening to music with my eyes closed, i think watching this piece being performed is just as gratifying. this piece is as much a physical test as it is musical, and at about 1:20 you see the hands and mallets moving in sync with each other, and it looks like a machine. phenomenal. Reply Music for 18 Musicians, for 4 female voices & 16 instruments Performed by Steve Reich & Musicians At the close of the 1970s, The New York Times declared Steve Reichs Music for 18 Musicians one of the ten most important works of that decade. But the passage of time has proven that inaccurate. Reply It is repetitive but it is also changing. Just a little each time round. It is hard music to appreciate as it is different and will take few listens to tune your ear to. I promise you when you do get it you will love it. Coffee is good to stay awake. I like to listen to this music when played live with my eyes closed sometimes . It adds more dimension to this music without the distraction of all those musicians squirming on stage trying to play it in tune and in time. Reply I wouldn't mind if they put more energy into it. Repetitive does not mean 'boring', after all. Reply 4:01 :)) Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
