"There's just a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history and Steve Reich is one of them," states The Guardian London. His instantly recognizable musical language combines propulsive rhythms and seductive instrumental color. Reich's style of composition has influenced many other composers and musical groups over the years, including Philip Glass, John Adams, King Crimson, Brian Eno, Sufjan Stevens, and DJ Spooky. Reich will be joined in conversation by Thurston Moore. As a member of Sonic Youth, Moore has been altering the landscape of rock music for over twenty years. 2007 saw the release of "Trees Outside the Academy," Moore's second solo album. As founder of Ecstatic Peace records, Moore has been an active champion of experimental and underground music since 1981.
