Born in ’60s America, with a healthy influence from jazz and world music, minimal music was a groundbreaking movement that explored the very idea of music itself. Having mutated over the ’70s and ’80s, today the sounds (though maybe not the theory) are everywhere: in film soundtracks, dance music and radio-friendly pop.
That seismic musical shift is the subject of the year-long Minimalism Unwrapped festival at Kings Place. Here are six composers whose work you’ll hear at the festival, from the founding fathers of minimalism to the new generation who’ve seized their legacy.
