Not a gig as such but off to see War of the Worlds at the Dominion Theatre on Monday. Cast includes David Essex, Jimmy Nail, Heidi Range, Daniel Bedingfield and Liam Neesom. Jeff Wayne is conducting the orchestra and the band includes Chris Spedding on guitar. Should be quite an interesting night and we got front row seats fo 20!

I was expecting to read Chris Speeding on motorbike there, Pete!

Nice! I'm sure he'll be performing much of the new album. I have a couple of his live DVDs, but haven't seen him in the flesh.

No motorbikin' but plenty of fire! It was a really good show - we had a great time. Surprised to hear that Heidi Range (former Sugerbabe) can actually sing! wink

Just saw the Steve Reich concert last night at Massey Hall in Toronto. For those who don't know him, he is a modern composer and a contemporary of Philip Glass and Terry Riley. His work often explores repetitive patterns that subtly shift over the work. He also likes keeping one pattern stable with an overlaying pattern that is out-of-phase.

I don't know if any members of Genesis were ever influenced by him, but you can see similar ideas in Genesis instrumentals that keep a fundamental rhythm going (e.g., Apocalypse in 9/8, Riding the Scree) while Tony lays a solo overtop that often includes repeated patterns that don't line up with the underlying rhythm. The backing track for San Jacinto also reminds me a lot of Steve Reich. Mike Oldfield's work also seems to bear resemblances to Reich's compositions, although again I don't know if there was any direct influence.

Anyway, the concert was fabulous. The maestro himself performing Clapping Hands and the other two pieces, Tehillim and Music for 18 Musicians were mesmerizing. If you are curious, YouTube has plenty of Reich's work to sample:



P.S. Skaggs, White, and Cooder were also fantastic. Lots of great country chestnuts spanning many decades.

I was eyeing both of these concerts. I'm a fairly big fan of Ry Cooder, and always wanted to go see him perform. I've been interested in Reich's music for a while. This looked like a great opportunity to hear his work live. Couple of events I had to opt out of for mainly practical reasons. undecided

Glad to hear you enjoyed the shows Dr. J. cool

I really like Paradise and Lunch but haven't explored his whole catalogue. Anything you would recommend?

Ry was a treat to see. He doesn't really tour much. He was very jovial and seemed to be having lots of fun. His playing was very tasteful and he also did a pretty good job as the bass vocal for the "gospel quartet" of Skaggs and the White sisters. If they are still touring around later this year, I would encourage you to catch him.
