Road trip through the repertoire of Reich, Riley & Glass

With Icons, BL!NDMAN go back to the early years of the ensemble: to the music of the American minimalists. Their repetitive structures, meticulous musical processes and blistering intensity had a huge influence on the ensemble. BL!NDMAN approach the rapidly expanding and contracting patterns of Glass, the psychedelic tape-delay canons of Riley and the intrinsically contrapuntal complexity of Reich as they should be approached: with unprecedented intensity and total surrender.
