The influence Steve Reich had on contemporary music can hardly be put into words. As one of the great innovators, he started playing around with tape loops and created rhythmic and tonal effects while recording the sounds of rain, it formed the basis of his ambitious project called " It's Gonna Rain". The great depth and complexity make this an outstanding song in his repertoire. The A-side of the LP contains “Violin Phase”, featuring Paul Zukofsky. This masterpiece in minimalist music is grand and epic. The two pieces were recorded live together under the title Live/Electric Music.
