'Colin Currie and Steve Reich. Live at Fondation Louis Vuitton' is the third album to be released on Colin Currie's own label and captures five performances, taken live, at a Steve Reich presentation in Paris. The music ranges from Clapping Music of 1972 to Pulse of 2015. James Jolly met up with Colin to talk about his long association with Reich's music, the approach needed to perform music of mathematical precision yet at the same surprising emotional weight, and performing Clapping Music with Reich himself.
