Never miss another 'Steve Reich' show
Radio Rewrite: Steve Reich, London Sinfonietta
After the sold-out world première performance in London, the London Sinfonietta brings Steve Reich’s Radio Rewrite to Brighton, a major new work inspired by Radiohead’s songs Everything In Its Right Place and Jigsaw Falling Into Place. “The greatest living composer of our time” (New York Times) is present in Brighton, and also performs in his seminal piece Clapping Music.
Reich is known as one of the pioneers of minimalism, although he sometimes deviates from a purely minimalist style. Ideas Reich have developed include using tape loops to create phasing patterns (such as in his first works, It's Gonna Rain, Come Out, Drumming); and using processes to create and explore musical concepts (Pendulum Music, Four Organs). These compositions, marked by their use of repetitive figures and phasing effects, have been a major influence in contemporary American music as well as contemporary music as a whole; The Guardian has described Reich as one of the few composers to have "altered the direction of musical history".
