Steve Reich profile

I became interested in minimalist composer Steve Reich's music after reading Brian Eno rave about him and it was flattering to be compared to him on the Playgroundology blog.

This video profile discusses his influences, his lo-fi ‘funky home tape recorders’ and his inspiration for his classic piece Music for 18 Musicians.

There's a great bit of advice in it when Reich says:
“Don’t tell me you don’t have the right equipment…. IT DOESN’T MATTER! What matters is your musical imagination and your ideas.”
