This chapter presents Reich's thoughts about Eight Lines. Eight Lines is exactly the same piece as Octet (1979) with the addition of a second string quartet. These additional four strings were added because of problems in performing the piece with only one player to a part.

Keywords:   Eight Lines, Octet, string quartet
