This seminal work employs Reich’s trademark phasing technique; subtle changes in timing and timbre cause the soundscape to build through a series of rhythmic loops which gradually evolve to create a wholly immersive experience. After hearing her performance on Drumming Reich commented: “The result is like a microscopic close up of the piece where all the finest details are heard with amazing clarity.” Drumming sees the award-winning percussionist once again demonstrate the musical intelligence and flair which makes such a captivating performer.
Kuniko is a soloist who is recognised around the world for her astonishing virtuosity, exquisite musical insight and expressive yet elegant performance style. She is renowned for her flawless technique when playing both keyboard and percussion instruments, which blends seamlessly with her profound musical intelligence. Kuniko’s debut Kuniko plays Reich was acclaimed by the media, becoming Linn’s bestselling album of 2011, whilst Cantus entered the Top 10 of the Official UK Specialist Classical Chart, Xenakis: IX was nominated at Japan’s Record Academy Awards and her transcriptions of J.S. Bach were named 2017’s #1 CD by Tower Records, Japan.
