Steve Reich: the composer who redefined the very concept of rhythm – and whose vitality interrogates and transforms everything it touches. Gerhard Richter: a titan of contemporary art, a master of light capable of charging abstract forms with intense emotional power.

Together with Britten Sinfonia they’ve combined original music and digital visuals, derived from Richter’s painting 946-3, to create a new artwork. ‘A stream of images, its rhythmic flow interpreted by music and, at the same time, a musical composition visualized by film images’ is how Richter describes a collaboration that’s anticipated as one of the most significant moments in contemporary art this year.
