Never miss another 'London Sinfonietta' show
London Sinfonietta, Brad Lubman, Steve Reich, SOUND Intermedia
Hot on the heels of its world premiere, the London Sinfonietta gives the second performance of Radio Rewrite, a new work from master of minimalism Steve Reich. The ideas for Radio Rewrite were inspired by the music of Radiohead. To open the concert, Reich himself will perform his famous Clapping Music.
Radio Rewrite is a co-commission by the London Sinfonietta and New York’s Alarm Will Sound.
The London Sinfonietta is one of the world’s elite contemporary music ensembles with a reputation built on the virtuosity of its performances and ambitious programming. It is committed to placing new music at the heart of contemporary culture and pushing boundaries; the ensemble regularly undertakes projects with choreographers, video artists, film-makers and collaborations with electronica artists, jazz and folk musicians.

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".
