Battles x Rachel Ray…?

“DJ Deelish”

“We are also reaching out to offer Battles a slot as one of the five bands in the ‘Feedback’ showcase (SXSW 2008)” supposedly hosted by the Food Network’s own Rachael Ray. “Battles music has long been enjoyed by Rachel and is a staple of her iPod.”

Last October I had the privelage of seeing the Steve Reich, one of the most influential minimalist 20th Century composers perform at Carnegie Hall. Steve Reich is most famous for his minmalist compositions using tape loops, stagnant rhythms that ebb and flow and simple linear melodies.
Music for 18 Musicians is a reaction to his minmalist style and his first maximalist piece. This piece is a dense piece of work relying on the weaving melodies of pianos, vocals, vibes, strings, & clarinets.

Steve Reich – Pulses from Music for 18 Musicians
Steve Reich – Fast from Electric Counterpoint (Performed by Pat Methany

Steve Reich inspired music:
Sufjan Stevens – Out of Egypt from Illnoise
Battles – B+T from EP C
Robert Fripp & The League of Crafty Guitarists – Scaling The Whales from Show of Hands
RJD2 – The Proxy from Dead Ringer
Radiohead – Arpeggi (Live @ The Ether Festival 2005)
