My name is


Described by The New York Times as 'our greatest living composer' and The New Yorker as 'the most original music thinker of our time', the music of Steve Reich manages to transcend regional or cultural boundaries, incorporating influences from around the world. A first generation minimalist, Reich places repetition, the use of speech and field recordings at the centre of his vast body of work. After the success of my earlier arrangement of Electric counterpoint (version for xylosynth) I was keen to explore more of Reich’s work, and after conversations with Steve during 2010, I decided we would tour his little-known early work My name is. Replacing 1960s tape with computer processing, we create a unique phasing performance by recording, editing and mixing audience members response to the question, What is your name?
