Reich's 1967 exploration of phase shifting for violin and pre-recorded tracks is a fascinating study of gradual yet constant change in the musical experience. Schmidt's transcription for guitar is no less hypnotic. Optionally, a live performance by four guitarists benefits from a good amount of flexibility in the score. For advanced performers.
