Music for 18 Machines – a reimagining of Steve Reich’s minimalist classic Music for 18 Musicians. Simply put it employs synthesisers in the places of musicians to voice the original work. Reich’s work is a blueprint of the minimalist movement – an exploration of pattern and process. Music for 18 Machines reverses this process in a search to elicit as an expressive and emotive performance from 18 electronic instruments being played by a single computer.
