Kuniko Plays Reich’ features three premiere arrangements of Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint for electric guitar and tape, Six Marimbas op. tr and Vermont Counterpoint. The exciting arrangements were all created in consultation with Reich (who has contributed to the booklet), and legendary guitarist Pat Metheny advised on ‘electric counterpoint – version for percussions’, having given the debut performance in 1987. The recording showcases KUNIKO’s new live solo marimba part that accompanies the pre-recorded tape of five marimbas in Six Marimbas Counterpoint. KUNIKO worked alongside some of the most respected producers, to create the perfect surround and stereo mixes of these vibrant works. This recording was made without loops or quantization. With up to twelve overlapping tracks, plus a live performance, each arrangement has a consistent timbre that allows the individual tracks to weave within each other, creating waves of sound.
