Reich or Wrong

Steve Reich interview. Talking in relation to people downloading only songs or parts of a piece:

"In my field, the idea that people are going to get chopped up into little movements is discouraging. On the other hand, Chuck Berry did have it right. "Any ol' way you use it." There is some truth to that. You can go into a coffee shop in Chicago, or New York, or Europe, and hear the Brandenburg Concerto tinkling away in the background, and it works just fine while you have your espresso or latte. That's not to say, hey, Bach just sold out, man."

Also, an interview with Steve Reich on his relationship with visual culture can be found here, from a recent issue of Frieze magazine.
