Minimalism

I've been enjoying writing some minimalist music, à la Steve Reich mainly, Terry Riley and Philip Glass.

This is pandiatonicism (translates to "all - tonics") and heavily influenced by Reich's Electric Counterpoint or Music for 18 musicians. I'm a big Metheny fan and was excited to find his name on some "minimalist" works so I thought I'd try something similar.

According to Paul Griffith's there is a single objective process at work, one leading to a music that is "constantly susceptible to adventitious interpretations...the music is made by the ear." Modern music and after: Directions since 1945
