description

Double album vinyl record with illustrated gatefold sleeve and a folded [30] page musical score of Steve Reich's "Drumming for Eight Small Tuned Drums, Three Marimbas, Three Glockenspiels, Male and Female Voices, Whistling, and Piccolo." The piece premiered at the Museum of Modern Art on December 3, 1971 followed by performances at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on December 11, 1971 , and at Town Hall on December 16, 1971. The recording on the vinyl record set is from the Town Hall performance. These performances were preceded by a partial performance of the piece at Loeb Student Center of New York University on November 14, 1971. Musicians in the ensemble included Steve Reich, Art Murphy, Steve Chambers, Ross Hartenberger, James Preiss, Jon Gibson, Joan La Barbara, Judy Sherman, Jay Clayton, Ben Harms, Gary Burke, Frank Maefsky, and James Ogden. Liner notes by Steve Reich. Photographs by Maureen Crowe and Peter Moore. The musical score is signed and numbered. "Drumming has taken more than a year to compose and rehearse. It lasts continuously for about one and a half hours, and is divided into four sections which are performed together without pause. The first section is for eight small tuned drums and male voice, the second for three marimbas and female voices, the third for three glockenspiels, whistling and piccolo, and the last section for all these instruments and voices combined." -- Steve Reich, from liner notes.
