My lovely partner Glennda bought me some skullcandy and I was just listening to some Steve Reich on them, specifically 2x5 a piece he composed in 2008 for Bang on a Can.  It’s a notated work for rock band instruments and like a great deal of music written for such instruments, it’s more effective to listen to it on headphones than in a natural acoustic.  The dialogue/relationship between classical and popular styles is getting really interesting these days.

    Those headphones are surprisingly great! I’m also trying to get a few musicians together to do 2x5 in Florida. :)
