KUNIKO’s fifth studio recording sees the hugely talented percussionist return to the music of Steve Reich, a composer she has championed since her debut recording in 2011.
Download includes - cover art, inlay, booklet

In Drumming KUNIKO delivers a tour-de-force performance of the work which is widely considered minimalism’s first masterpiece. Performing all thirteen parts herself, and adopting the same multi-track approach which was so successful on kuniko plays reich, KUNIKO once again displays the technical virtuosity and flawless musicianship for which she is renowned.

This seminal work employs Reich’s trademark phasing technique; subtle changes in timing and timbre cause the soundscape to build through a series of rhythmic loops which gradually evolve to create a wholly immersive experience. After hearing her performance on Drumming Reich commented: "The result is like a microscopic close up of the piece where all the finest details are heard with amazing clarity".

Drumming sees the award-winning percussionist once again demonstrate the musical intelligence and flair which makes such a captivating performer.

'Pinprick precision? Here it is, with every layer in Reich’s tapestry cleanly delineated to a degree hard to achieve in a live concert. Reich called the result a “remarkable pleasure”, offering a startling “microscopic close-up” of his score. I know what he means...'

Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review
'I have heard virtually all of the versions that have come out since the first recording and they are all good. But this one is by far the best, the most inspired, the most moving I have heard.'

'It almost seems as if Kuniko is the natural sound realization of Reich's compositions on paper. Not only that her playing is precise and that she implements the constantly only slightly changing sequences wonderfully primely. She also is highly musical! Everything flows naturally, is connected, interwoven, interleaved.'
