Three Dances For Two Amplified Prepared Pianos. Four Organs For Four Electric Organs & Maracas.

Three Dances (1944-45) for two amplified prepared pianos. Four Organs (1970) for four electric organs and maracas. The present performances were prepared for the Ojai Festival in June 1973, of which Michael Tilson Thomas was Music Director, and recorded immediately afterward in Los Angeles.

Motoric Intense Visceral Hypnotic Narcotic. Ralph Grierson, Michael Tilson Thomas. Cage: 3 Dances; Reich: 4 Organs; Stravinsky: Rite of Spring. Three Dances, for 2 prepared amplified pianos.

Four Organs is a work for four electronic organs and maraca, composed by Steve Reich in January 1970. The four organs harmonically expound a dominant eleventh chord (E–D–E–F♯–G♯–A–B), dissecting the chord by playing parts of it sequentially while the chord slowly increases in duration from a single 1/8 note at the beginning to 200 beats at the end. The process of increased augmentation is accomplished first by causing notes to sustain after the chord, and then notes start anticipating the chord
