Album Review

Reviewed 2016-10-28 
– General Description: Double Sextet was composed by Steve Reich in 2007 for a single sextet of strings, winds, and vibraphone performing with a tape of itself (as in Violin Phase). Bradley Lubman with Ensemble Signal records it here using 12 live musicians. Radio Rewrite was composed by Steve Reich in 2013 for 11 instruments, close to the ensemble heard in the Double Sextet. Recommended for both Reich and Radiohead fans. NOTE: This is really two long compositions. Tracks 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 all stop WHAM! in mid-thought play non-stop tracks 1-3 and 4-8 to make any musical sense.

– Track Reviews:

1. (8:17) Fast - Double Sextet; fast piano base, long tones above, breaks for block piano chords
2. ***(6:57) Slow - Double Sextet; spooky night-in-Paris-cafe feel
3. (6:39) Fast - Double Sextet; has a whimsical quality then picks up the intense pace again, then a proper ending
4. (4:05) Fast - Radio Rewrite; fast more melodic piano base, mostly long tones above, also more melodic
5. (3:23) Slow - Radio Rewrite; spooky again and sort of sad in feel
6. (3:30) Fast - Radio Rewrite; picks up the pace again, richer orchestration
7. (3:40) Slow - Radio Rewrite; slows right back down, very introspective
8. (3:10) Fast - Radio Rewrite; picks up the pace again, then a proper ending
