Steve Reich - Electric Guitar Phase

Steve Reich - "Electric Guitar Phase"

I've always loved Reich's compositions with percussion, especially mallet instruments, but his works translate just as well to other families of instruments.

"Electric Guitar Phase" clocks in at around 15 minutes, but makes me lose all sense of time whenever I listen to it. Joe Satriani meets Manuel Göttsching, or something. Great study/chill out music. I'm always irked when good music is "praised" like that but you know what I mean.
