C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Steve Reich

He is often described as a minimalist, in this case utilizing only eighteen musicians in this piece, foregoing the grandiose symphony orchestra to see what he can do with less. And, boy, does he get the most out of this small ensemble. The entire piece is a convergence of harmony and rhythm in a way that tricks your brain into hearing things that aren't there or that it thinks it hasn't heard before.

Got any favorite minimalists?
