Tubular Reich

As in Steve. Not really within the specs of the challenge, but . . . .

unSane's 4 minutes of minimalist repetitive piano riff made me think of of modern minimalist composers - especially Steve Reich and his tape loop pieces, and his idea of using multiple iterations of the same repetitive phrase offset by time, and seeing how new phrases and tones are created by this combination.

So all of the music in this is the original piano track, some of it just the track started in a different place, other tracks pitch-shifted or distorted and/or at different tempos.

(Note: entire parts are missing if I'm only listening on my laptop's speakers . . . . . I'd suggest headphones.)
