This is a really great piece to listen to while you’re traveling, or while getting ready in the morning, etc. I am an intense fan of minimalism, and I can say that in all of the fifty or so times I’ve listened to the whole piece, I’ve never listened with a critical ear for its entire duration. It’s the sort of music that was/is never meant to be listened to in that manner, I think. It is music that creates an environment which fosters the listener’s own contemplation; a state of meditation, really. Let it wash over you and let your thoughts drift. You may be surprised to find that in wishing to discover something about Reich’s music, you actually discover something more important about yourself.
I can do this. I can finish listening to this. I am capable.
