Composer: Steve Reich

The sixth episode in an anniversary series around the 80th birthday of Steve Reich later this year: the late 70s. In the late 70s, Reich developed the style with which he would become famous with the general public. That style is a mix of chord progression, psycho acoustics and simplification. And still the African rhythms, that are stuck in his memory since the beginning of his career, are shimmering.
