‘kuniko plays reich’ features three premiere arrangements of Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint for electric guitar and tape, Six Marimbas op. tr and Vermont Counterpoint. The exciting arrangements were all created in consultation with Reich (who has contributed to the booklet).
The recording showcases KUNIKO’s new live solo marimba part that accompanies the prerecorded tape of five marimbas in Six Marimbas Counterpoint.
KUNIKO's passion for Steve Reich's music and her commitment to creating the perfect sound led her to work alongside several greatly respected producers and engineers.
KUNIKO is a soloist who is recognised around the world as one of the most gifted and significant percussionists of her generation in today’s contemporary and classical music scene.
'Kuniko Kato is a first rate percussionist who has put a lot of careful thought and hours of rehearsal into making this excellent CD. She has created new and very beautiful arrangements.' Steve Reich, 2011

“All these studio works involve vast amounts of pre-recording to refine their pleasing results, none more so than Six Marimbas Counterpoint which involves five pre-recorded tracks behind a solo line. It's a hypnotic and strangely calming experience.”
