Just realized Steve Reich himself will be performing Music for 18 Musicians in NYC on Tuesday. Like…this Tuesday. as in 6 days away Tuesday in NYC. like 4 hours away from me. Like up the street for real….

• I’d have to overdraft my account to pull this off cuz it ain’t a pay week.
• Pray the Holy Ghost will give my cat a sense of how to lay down for 36 instead of 16 hours while I’m away.
• I’d have to get off the greyhound upon my return and take the MTA straight up Howard street to walk into work and pull a 12 hour shift.
• google, yelp, or text franksandbeanz how on earth to find a cheap sandwich in Brooklyn away from the tourists.

and pray that all these cons would be 110% worth dropping my life just to hear this one. damn. ass. song. and the moment i think i’ve figured out a solution….

Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuckery dammit ass fuck.

So he went back to New York, formed Steve Reich and Musicians – who, in an early echo of events at the Bloc Festival, performed everywhere from art galleries to discos – humped furniture with Philip Glass and developed his phasing technique. He went to Ghana to study African drumming.

"You could get a cheap ticket if you went to some place in east London and got some ticket that said you were a Nigerian flight engineer," he frowns. "Do I look like a Nigerian flight engineer?" He came back with a case of malaria, and a renewed conviction that he was following the right path.
