Music for Eighteen Muscicians

Steve Reich

compact disc

1978

A pulsing,minimal musical work which uses very subtle, microscopically precise shifts in timing and timbral arrangement to create some breathtaking aural and temporal illusions.

hearing

One of the most interesting elements of Reich's work is a psycho-acoustic effect whereby sounds not even present in the piece seem to materialize from nowhere as a consequence of the complex arrangement and the illusions produced by high levels of repetition. Over time the ear seeks to establish relationships that conform to familiar sonic phenomena creating a tension between the actual and the anticipated.
