“He didn’t reinvent the wheel so much as he showed us a new way to ride.” – John Adams on Steve Reich.

This piece is my tribute to Steve Reich and many other minimalist composers that I admire and respect. If you are in minimalism, or even if you aren’t, give this piece a listen. One of my personal favorites!

A New Way To Ride was Commissioned by Mr. Kevin Cato for Mt. Eden High School (Hayward, CA) in the Winter of 2012.
