The Selected Papers were chosen from of a Call for Papers issued in July, 2020. The requirements were that the submissions should concern Steve Reich’s music and his influence. Suggested topics were Reich and: performance practice; percussion; popular music; theory; American culture; and global perspective. Proposals could be made with media interactivity or other forms of creative scholarship. As with everything in 2020, the process was affected by the pandemic; one of the selected papers had to be withdrawn due to Covid complications. The peer review panel was: Russell Hartenberger, Chair (Nexus; University of Toronto); Victoria Aschheim (Dartmouth College); Aiyun Huang (University of Toronto); Adam Sliwinski (Sō Percussion; Princeton University).
