I’m cheating a bit here cause it’s actually an existing recording, I’ll have no better homage to Mr Reich than posting one of the many tracks I recorded inspired by him (including my recent disquiet 0246, also name checking him there)
This one originally titled Electric Bass Phases (and its sister track Stratocaster Phases) are
direct homage to him.
Performed using a 5 string Steinberger Electric Bass.
8 different tracks, not exactly “phasing” as he did, but in a different yet similar way, More in the Electric Counterpoint vein. building up on every pass.
