Project News: Research for 12-Pages 'Movement'

I came across Steve Reich's work a while ago, but consciously decided to really listen to his compositions when Timothy Knights reintroduced me to him last year. The repetitive, complex arrangements, yet minimalistic music he creates evokes a emotional response that lyrics cannot express.
His use of phrasing has been described as a kaleidoscope that is gradually shifting. 'Four Organs' and 'Drumming' are examples of 'movement' that I find rather exciting in relation to the current 12-Pages brief.
