Drumming by Steve Reich

This event is part of YAP FEST 2015
MAXXI Piazza, Spazio YAP – admittance free

A world in which modern and antique,
western and non-western
are no longer separate categories

Steve Reich finished the composition in the autumn of 1971 following his trip to Africa in mid-1970: the whole piece Drumming is constructed around a single rhythmic-melodic pattern played entirely or in part throughout the duration of the execution, with all its expressive possibilities being developed through changes in tone, timbre and intervals.

A concert for four pairs of tuned bongos, three marimbas, three glockenspiels, soprano, contralto, piccolo and whistle.
Music by Steve Reich.
