Steve Reich is probably the most remix-ready of contemporary classical composers, which makes this project a good idea whose time should have come long ago. His minimalist twelve-tone symphonettes are constructed around trippy circular riffs that just beg to be sliced up into loops and juxtaposed against steely drum-machine rhythms. Happily, the nine mixmaster generals on Reich Remixed have radically different notions of how to go about doing this. The British duo Coldcut pile mushrooming synths and modern-primitive beats onto Reich's classic "Music for 18 Musicians," rattling his serene dreamscape with ambient-techno mayhem. Nobukazu Takemura taps into the becalming spirituality of "Proverb" by adding a gently pulsing electronic undertow and a soaring choirboy vocal. And, true to form, DJ Spooky delves into pure metal-machine music abstraction with his take on "City Life." Reich purists may take issue with Remixed, but if it leads a few inquiring minds to check out the original recordings, it's a mission accomplished. (RS 811)
Steve Reich - Tehillim/Three Movements for Orchestra (1994)

Steve Reich: Tehillim/Three Movements for Orchestra (1994)
Classical | EAC (APE & CUE) | 214 MB

Tehillim begins with a joyful noise that just about bypasses the brain altogether and heads directly for the feet. It has the fascination of watching intricate clockwork. In Three Movements for Orchestra Reich exploits instrumental ambiguities. One part "inserts" its notes in between the notes of another part. The pulse "moves" from left to right and back throughout the movement as various instruments take it up, and there's a kind of overlap of instrumental colors as if you're forced to listen with two sets of ears - one set catches the constant pulse as it shifts position; the other catches, through the different instrumental colors, the individual rhythms that make up the pulse.

If Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians is simply described in terms of its materials and organization – 11 chords followed by 11 pieces built on those chords – then it might seem utterly dry and monotonous. The actual music, though, is far from lackluster. When this recording was released in 1978, the impact on the new music scene was immediate and overwhelming. Anyone who saw potential in minimalism and had hoped for a major breakthrough piece found it here. The beauty of its pulsing added-note harmonies and the sustained power and precision of the performance were the music's salient features; and instead of the sterile, electronic sound usually associated with minimalism, the music's warm resonance was a welcome change. Yet repeated listening brought out a subtle and important shift in Reich's conception: the patterns were no longer static repetitions moving in and out of phase with each other, but were now flexible units that grew organically and changed incrementally over the course of the work.

LSO Live explore the music of America s most influential living composer with performances of three of his most iconic works: 'Sextet', 'Clapping Music' and 'Music for Pieces of Wood'. Employing Reich s universally recognisable sound world, 'Sextet' uses hypnotic repetitions of a sequence of harmonies, which gradually overlap and interweave, resulting in a complex yet utterly compelling musical landscape. Introducing more dissonance and aggressive rhythms than previous compositions, the relationship of the five movements is that of an arch form, A-B-C-B-A.

Dimenticate quello che credete di sapere sul capitalismo come lo conosciamo oggi.
Dimenticate la diffusa convinzione che si tratti di un sistema meritocratico in cui chiunque, se lavora davvero sodo, può farcela; che quelli che non ce la fanno, i poveri, siano responsabili della loro condizione.
Dimenticate, soprattutto, l’idea che il mercato sia così com’è perché la sua razionalità intrinseca l’ha plasmato nel migliore dei modi possibili. Il mercato, come ogni cosa creata dall’uomo, può essere ordinato e regolato in molti modi alternativi, e chi ne decide le regole è la politica…
