Steve Reich - Early Works (1987) Retail CD
This collection of Reich's early works is a fascinating insight into the development of his minimalist techniques. It's a long way from the lush textures of later works like "Music For 18 Musicians", which sounds positively mainstream compared to the stark experimentalism on display here. "Come Out" and "It's Gonna Rain" are tape pieces which explores the possibilities of tape-loop phasing to hypnotic effect, as speech gradually morphs into shimmers of pure sound. "Clapping Music" is just that, while the beautiful "Piano Phase" shows the phasing technique applied to two pianos. This isn't anmore… album for the casual listener, and it's definitely more interesting than it is easy to listen to, but adventurous ears will find this a very richly rewarding album
