Comment:

Much like the master himself, Reich's interpreters tend to be a forward-thinking, audience-challenging bunch; in fact, that may be the only characteristic tying them all together. Clarinetist Evan Ziporyn, of the ever-fluid aggregation known as Bang on a Can, carries on an 11-track musical conversation with himself, pulsing and weaving like a bicycle messenger through city traffic in "New York Counterpoint: II. Slow." The Orb tear a page out of the Reich playbook, sampling his "Electric Counterpoint" and cutting it in with a stream-of-consciousness monologue in their ambient-meets-house mash-up "Little Fluffy Clouds." And indie-rock godfathers Sonic Youth tackle Reich at his most conceptually challenging in their version of "Pendulum Music," a piece created by swinging microphones over speakers, resulting in a festival of feedback. From Tranquility Bass to the Los Angeles Philharmonic, from the Horus Percussion Ensemble to Howie B, artists from across the musical spectrum turn to Reich's prolific pen — not to mention his recordings — for inspiration.
