Comment:

For a man widely considered a godfather of minimalism, Steve Reich has had a reach that's anything but minimal. Armed with nothing more than a double-tracked violin, his fellow Mills College alumnus Laurie Anderson wraps the icy heart of "Born, Never Asked" in a cloak of warmth and emotion, detaching it from detachment, despite its flirtation with darkness. Brian Eno sets Pachelbel's "Canon in D" on the sampling block, employing Reichian tape manipulation to layer, cut, paste, reshape, and rearrange one of the Baroque era's most celebrated compositions into his neo-ambient "French Catalogues." And The Sea and Cake conjure up a bright and bubbly synth-slathered sound — technically speaking, a kaleidoscope of contrapuntal ostinati — in the title track to their album The Moonlight Butterfly. From David Byrne to DJ Spooky to Sufjan Stevens, it seems like some of our favorite artists — and by no means all of them from the classical world — have plugged into Reich's melding of melody and minimalism.
