Reich Remix MP3

Per a recent post at, the page at the‘s One Music subsite that hosted a remix contest built around Steve Reich‘s Music for 18 Musicians is no longer functioning, with no evident explanation for the absence. Oddly, the source file for the contest is still posted (MP3), and needless to say the proprietor of electrodata probably isn’t the only person to have cobbled together a remix and found the contest no longer exists.

What’s a minimalist to do? Head over to electrodata for a smart, tidy take on the Reich original, which might be called “Music for 18 ‘Music for 18 Musicians,'” in that it layers and pans a dozen and a half parallel but slightly askew tracks, leading to hallucinogenic beading that Reich would no doubt approve of, whether or not he approved of the BBC-sponsored contest itself (MP3).
