You cannot have enough Steve Reich music in your life. Four Organs is a work for four electronic organs and maraca, composed by the Reich, in January 1970, and is the very definition of minimalism (a movement he started with Glass, La Monte Young, Riley et.al). Four identical Farfisa organs strike a single chord and gradually lengthen each note to produce polyrhythms between the players. Anchored by Jon Gibson's on maracas, the piece deconstructs its opening burst to a sustained mass of sound – stretching the tones to create (in Reich's words) "slow-motion music." Superior Viaduct do the honest thing and press this hypnotic work on vinyl for those too pennilessness to afford the original wax.
