Music For 18 Revisions

Music For 18 Revisions

Being that one of my favourite pieces of music is Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians I thought I’d explore as many contemporary remixes and versions as I could for this third, exclusive mix for Mixcloud Select. Scouring the web as well as a few pieces in my own collection yielded many different interpretations from the last 15 years or so.

Some are dancefloor versions inc. Coldcut’s famous remix and Ruoho Ruotsis for official Reich Remixed compilations. A few artists have attempted the whole piece solo, Outbounded - an electronic version, Erik Hall - a part by part close copy and Rough Fields in an acoustic style, I’d recommend them all.

There's no attempt to put the parts in the original order, they were placed more for tempo continuity than anything else. There are also only 9 remixes/versions although some appear several times but 18 reads better than 9. I’ve also added spoken word pieces of Reich from interviews talking about the piece and his practice in general.

I remember the Coldcut version from the "Reich Remixed" album that came up in the late 1990s. :) Lots of great tracks on there, especially Kurtis Mantronik's take on "Drumming".
