We were psyched to hear that Steve Reich was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his composition 'Double Sextet.' The piece is written to be played by two identical sextets of instruments, each made up of flute, clarinet, violin, cello, vibraphone and piano -- or by one sextet playing against a recording of the other.
This wasn't the first time Reich used symmetry in his compositions -- we talked to him about it a couple years ago: listen HERE.
