Steve Reich for guitar

Post by karlbruma » Tue Aug 06, 2013 4:14 pm

Hi

Any idea about a music by Steve Reich that most suits to make a transcription for guitar?

(if not obviously includes the original "Electric Counterpoint," nor the transcription has been made ​​of "Nagoya Mrimbas")

All the best

What about piano phase? It is basically one "riff" that needs to be phased with another guitarist or recording.

Could be done with a basic looper pedal.

I'm not a music major but I am a long time Steve Reich fan. Some ideas , I don't know how doable:
Six Pianos / Marimbas
Sextet ( or an excerpt thereof )

If you haven't already done so, you should check out Dublin Guitar Quartet doing Philip Glass and Terry Riley for inspiration.

Let us know how it turns out.
