"She shot the The Beatles in 1963 and found them 'very bright and interesting.' Not long after, she captured Bob Dylan, still just in his 20s, and recalls: 'I think I was the only photographer at the gig.'

Authors and musicologists Kerry O'Brien and William Robin have written an essential evaluation of the history of minimalist music titled On Minimalism.
The two joined host Lawrence Peryer on the new episode of the Spotlight On podcast to discuss the book, why we should look beyond the big four (Terry Riley, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, and La Monte Young), and how the aesthetic strains found in almost all modern music is a sort of victory for minimalism.
