On this episode of lo-fidelity, we begin to explore the works of one of the most influential composers in modern music: Steve Reich. In order to do so we explore prominent works from Stravinsky, Schoenberg, and Stockhausen to set the stage for where classical music was heading toward in the early 20th century. We then sample Reich’s technique of “phasing” in four of his earliest pieces: “It’s Gonna Rain” (1965), “Come Out” (1966), “Piano Phase” (1967), and “Clapping Music” (1972). Come join us for our trip into the avant garde where atonality and tonality clash, and sampling finds its initial foothold in rhythmic construction.
