Steve Reich
Radio Rewrite
Nonesuch

Steve Reich is a master of minimalism He saw Johnny Greenwood playing his composition, Electric Counterpoint, during a festival in his name and went home and listened to Radiohead. He then composed Radio Rewrite referencing Everything In Its Right Place and Jigsaw Falling Into Place.

(1-3) (14:41) Electric Counterpoint (1987) - Johnny Greenwood
Guitarist records 10 guitars and 2 electric bass parts and then plays the final 11th guitar part live against the tape
**1. (6:51) Fast: Minimalist swirl of guitar
**2. (3:22) Slow: Slow counterpoint
3. (4:31) Fast: Fast counterpoint, a little dissonant

**4. (13:47) Piano Counterpoint (1973, arr. 2011) - Vicky Chow
An arrangement of Six Pianos where 4 of the 6 pianos are pre=recorded and the last wo are combined into a single part played live giving it increased sparkle and intensity

(5-9) (17:28) Radio Rewrite (2012) - Alarm Will Sound
Strings, flute, clarinet, vibraphones, pianos, electric bass.
Draws heavily upon the original Radiohead tracks at times
*5. (3:52) I. Fast - dramatic flair
*6. (3:23) II. Slow - droney
7. (3:21) III. Fast - jerky
8. (3:53) IV. Slow - flute drone noodle
9. (2:59) V. Fast - spritely piano
