Steve Reich

Steve Reich (born October 3, 1936) is one of the most famous living composers, whose minimalist, repetitive style of music has influenced many others.

Reich studied at Cornell University, the Juilliard School and, from 1961 to 1963, Mills College[?] in Oakland, California with Luciano Berio and Darius Milhaud. His works, particularly Drumming (1971), show the influence of African music.
