Percussion vs Gravity

Friday 24th March / posted by Chris Wheeldon

The music of legendary American composer Steve Reich comes to life as WAAPA’s award-winning percussion ensemble Defying Gravity performs his classics.

Considered one of America’s greatest and most influential living composers, Reich pioneered minimalism in the 1960s with music that thrives on pattern, pulse and melody, and remains a giant on the contemporary music scene.

Vocalist Pippa Lester and percussionist Tao Issaro were in the studio to share more about it, and treat Artbeat to a live tune.
