Minimal music for guitar

Post by pankos » Tue Dec 05, 2017 12:01 am

Hello!
I am looking for minimal or postminimal pieces for guitar. There is of course Reich's Electric Counterpoint, i found also Annette Kruisbrink's 60+, but what's more? Do you know such pieces? I think there are some, but they are unknown, and we have to discover it :) Please tell me what you know! :merci:

Very often this term refers to european composers as Arvo Part, Michael Nyman or Henryk Mikolaj Gorecki.

Thank you Dirck!

I also thought, that a lot of pieces of Brouwer is minimal in style (Cuban landscapes, some studies).
But whats more? :)

Doesn't seem that hard to find. There is even a thread here on delcamp from 2006:

I listened to, and it's not technically the best playing :roll: But yes, pieces are minimal.
