(OB-6) Steve Reich: "Six Oberheims"

Published on Jan 8, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Reich's 'Six Pianos', here performed on the OB-6 (x6). Wonderful piece of music - in my opinion even better on 6 synths than 6 pianos. So much more life can be brought to the music through filter sweeps etc.

Lots of time spent on this arrangement/performance - but worth the work. When heard on the Obi, it is easy to forget this piece was composed over 45 years ago. It sounds as if it were written yesterday!

PS dynamic variation is not through altering the volume; it is a product of filter/resonance sweeping.

The photo I took on the Humber Bridge. Worth a walk across if you are ever in the area. Much like this piece of music, it is a large, complex, imposing structure. With great views :)

Enjoy & all best
