HASH(0xa2c231f8) out of 5 stars Better than Steve Reich April 14 2013
By mhouse - Published on
This album is based on works by Steve Reich with some additional musical explorations. The pieces are not a deconstruction of Reich's work, they are an improvement on them. While I love Reich's work (I have 3 Drumming albums), Chris Hughes takes it and expands on it. It reminds me of the scene in the movie "Amadeus" where Mozart is being introduced to the emperor. Salieri composed an entry piece for Mozart and plays it as he enters. As Mozart begins to exit, Salieri hands him the piece of music and Mozart says he doesn't need it, he's already memorized it. To prove it, he plays the piece, but he also extemporaneously adds to it, embellishing it, musically asking "What if...?", much to Salieri's disdain. Here, Chris Hughes does the same thing: he takes Reich's works as a beginning and works magic into them. Instead of repetition that can become tiresome, we have melodies and sounds that maintain interest and audience curiosity. Highly recommended, especially if you enjoy Reich.
