Chloé and Vassilena Serafimova present:
The Works Of Steve Reich

The Works Of Steve Reich
Wednesday 3rd October

“[Reich is one of] a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history” – The Guardian

Electronic artists Chloé and Vassilena Serafimova honour Steve Reich’s birthday by performing their own unique interpretations on pieces taken from across his groundbreaking and vast body of work.

A pioneer of minimal music in the 60s alongside La Monte Young, Terry Riley and Philip Glass, Reich was not just a boundary pusher in terms of his style but was also an innovator in his recording techniques, such as his use of tape loops on early compositions “It’s Gonna Rain” and “Come Out”. Influenced much by Balinese gamelan music as he is by African percussion, Reich’s compositions remain some of the 20th century’s most revolutionary and influential (see “Music For 18 Musicians” and “Electric Counterpoint” as proof).

Chloé is a French electronic composer who last year garnered critical acclaim for her third album Endless Revisions, with RA citing that it “refines [her] opaque, introspective sound”. Vassilena Serafimova is co-founder of the International Marimba and Percussion Festival in Bulgaria who, like Chloé, is a serial collaborator.

In performance Chloé and Vassilena Serafimova fuse the marimba’s percussive and melodic possibilities with the limitless sound world of electronic music. It is, in their words, a “hypnotic fable … inspired by pioneers of minimalist music of the 70s”.
