Drumming was Reich's breakthrough work, written after studying drums in Ghana. In 1971, the long duration and unusual ensemble pushed minimalism's boundaries. The piece develops rhythmic fragments first with drums, then with layers of tuned percussion. The marimbas enter in "Part II," hinting at the shimmering beauty to come in "Music for 18 Musicians."
