An evening of classic minimalist and process compositions: Steve Reich's Pendulum Music reveals the musical complexity behind a simple system of swinging microphones. Alvin Lucier's Still and Moving Lines of Silence in Families of Hyperbolas maps the topography of the concert hall with mobile patterns of pure waves. Louis' Andriessen's Hoketus brings a gritty Dutch edge to pulsing minimalist rhythm. And Philip Glass' rarely heard early composition Two Pages presents an amplified circular-breathing tour de force.
