Mark Stewart - Electric Counterpoint [Part 1]

Full review to follow. Playing while being soaked in the golden glow of the evening sun peeking around the skyscrapers, Bang on a Can's Mark Stewart presented this Steve Reich piece arranged for solo electric guitar and backing tracks. What struck me was how contemporary this sounds in a pop music context. If you blind-posted this as the product of some hot new Williamsburg band ("RIYL: Buke + Gass, Animal Collective") people would "like" it without batting an eye.
