12 editions published between 1987 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Textzeile "Schon der kleinste Gedanke genügt, um ein Leben zu erfüllen" von Ludwig Wittgenstein aus "Kultur und Wert" von 1946 besteht in der englischen Übersetzung aus lauer einsilbig erklingenden Wörtern; ("How small a thought it takes to fill a whole life"). Die Soprane singen ihren Part mit je einer Note pro Silbe, die Tenöre tragen lange Melismen auf einer einzigen Silbe vor. Nach einer a-capella-Einleitung doppeln die beiden elektrischen Orgeln durchgehend die Singstimmen und liefern die ergänzenden Harmonien; später setzt das Schlagwerk ein und artikuliert die Verlagerungen in den zwei- und dreizeitigen Rhythmen der Singstimmen
City life by Steve Reich( Recording )

10 editions published between 1987 and 1996 in Undetermined and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"City Life" verbindet Instrumentalklänge mit Umweltgeräuschen wie Autohupen, knallende Türen, Bremsgeräusche, Signalhörner und Sirenen sowie Sprachfetzen und Satzfragmenten zu einem Klangporträt der Stadt New York. Die Geräusche werden im Gegensatz zu früheren Werken des Komponisten nicht vom Tonband zugespielt sondern erklingen live ab Sampling-Keboards, was eine flexiblere Integration der gespeicherten Klänge erlaubt. Oft werden passende Instrumente zur Dopplung von Umweltgeräuschen eingesetzt: Holzblasinstrumente für Autohupen und Schiffshörner, Schlaginstrumente für knallende Autotüren. Wie oft bei Steve Reich sind die Sätze in einer symmetrischen A-B-C-B-A-Abfolge von Sätzen mit ähnlichen Tempi und vergleichbarem Charakter angelegt
