Steve reich live electric music


Launched in October 2006, Whitney Live represented the next stage in the museum’s commitment to the performing arts: a series highlighting the intersection of performance and installation. The inaugural event, Steve Reich @ the Whitney , reprised and reinvented the presence of music in the Breuer Building. Reich arranged the instruments, equipment, and musicians as they would be in a gallery rather than a concert hall; visitors were invited to enter the space, wander around at will, and stay for some of the music, experiencing the entire installation up-close. The end result was more environmental sound sculpture than concert. The performance also underscored the museum’s extraordinary history with Reich, which stretches back to his participation, along with twenty-two other artists including Philip Glass, Carl Andre, and Richard Serra, in the 1969 exhibition  Anti-Illusion: Procedures/Materials .
