Interesting... I've actually been kicking that idea around for a while, to write a piece for one pianist, two pianos, though nothing at all in the style of Steve Reich...

Right, because Reich's music is so offensive. :rolleyes:

I found that piece irritating. In fact I heard shouts from the other room to turn it off. The Cambry duet was much more interesting albeit pretty traditional.

minimumalist music? that's why there's no jumps on either hand...repetitions over the almost same position...and over and over... oh, Fazioli!

It sounded like noise, but that's just me \:D

Such nuance! Such shading! Such delicately subtle dynamics! It brought tears to my eyes!

[Sigh!]

Loc: Betelgeuse, baby!
The Reich is a great example of "phase music" -- Clapping Music being another (and perhaps more fun too). If taken in the spirit in which they were written (partly, only partly, for the listener to "zone out" to, but not the performer[s]), they're wonderful, and certainly innovative for their time. How anyone can think of them as "noise" is certainly beyond me.
Ok, I think more traditionally (i.e. teleologically) oriented ears should check out John Adams's works for solo piano, especially Phrygian Gates and China Gates, or his piano concerto Century Rolls. As minimalist composers go, I'm more fond of Adams than Reich (though both are way ahead of, ahem, Philip Glass).
