Steve Reich (Updated w/links)

I haven't gotten heavily into classical music. It is a bore to most of our generation in its pure form, yet we come in contact with it in commercials, movies, advertisements. Steve Reich has effected music to the umpteenth degree. There is a great piece on his classical composition "Drumming" over at Pitchfork TV.

Part I

Part II

Don't think "classical." Think "cool." And check out the band "Caribou." They have a live set over there @ Pitchfork.tv and it is phenom!

UPDATE: Sorry - the vids did something wack to my blog. I have attached links instead.
