Description: Identity for a Steve Reich invitational poster for the 2006 aniversary exhibition at The Barbican. Reich re-recorded the fragment "come out to show them" on two tape-loops, which initially play in unison. They quickly slip out of sync to produce a phase-shifting effect. Gradually, the discrepancy widens and becomes a reverberation. ---------- Here the "STEVE" follows one tape-loop, whilst the "REICH" follows the other. They synchronise on the "E" in both words.

For me it's too hard to read. I read stretch or something like that.

Cool. But I'd really like to see how it looks and works on a plain background.

I got it immediately and for me it absolutely and completely communicates the music. I can appreciate that the reason I got it so quickly is that I know of Steve Reich's works (not a massive fan) and his manipulation of sound and minimalist approach seems to be reflected perfectly in this work. I think it's brilliant. Not too subtle and too obvious but to get that middle ground I feel takes real skill.

It might be hard to read, but since it's a once off thing, then why not?

Really nice! Even though it is tough to read, but if it is a once off thing then why not?
