Steve Reich - Electric Counterpoint
  1. Minimalist techniques
    1. Addition
      1. Ostinatoes are added slowly into the piece, slowly increasing its texture
      2. Phasing
        1. When one idea is played slightly out of time then is "phased" until it matches the rest of the melodic lines
          1. NOT ACTUALLY USED IN THIS PIECE
        2. Panning
          1. When certain tracks are played through separate speakers, creating a 3D effect and making the thick texture seem less cluttered.
          2. Subtraction

            2. Texture
