Piano Phasing Music

More process music inspired by Steve Reich.

Two part exploration of sounds that come out of phasing a C Major scale. In the first part the two pianos are playing at different tempos, as in Reich’s “Piano Phase”, but in the second part they are playing in different meters, which gives a similar but not identical sound to Reich’s “Clapping Music”. It’s techincally more similar to phasing music written by Robert Fripp and Adrian Belew, such as certain parts of “Frame by Frame”, recorded by King Crimson.

Lots of fun sounds letting themselves be heard here. I haven’t decided what kind of experiment to do for next week yet. I’m thinking maybe a take on Terry Riley’s “In C”?
