You’ve got Steve Reich on your speed dial, right? He calls now and then? This is totally a realistic experience of what happens in your daily life? I’m sure it is.

Texting, of course, is similar, me and Steve. “U up?” “U up?” “U up?” “Up?” “Uu up?” “up??” “Uuu up?” “up? U” “Uuuu up?” “up? Uu” “u—

True story.

Also I recently installed the Steve Reich Weather app, because it tells me if It’s Gonna Rain.

Thank you, you’ve been a lovely audience, I’ll be here all night!

    Amusing and inspiring. Even a boring ring tone can becomes fascinating with time variation. Time to listen to more to listen more to Steve Reich to listen, Steve, more time.
