Steve Reich writes in The Guardian:

Thirty-six years ago, I had the nerve to write a short essay entitled “Some Optimistic Predictions about the Future of Music”. I would not write such an essay today. We really know very little about what is going on right under our nose – forget the future.

I know what he means. Still, the predictions were compelling and in many cases right on the money. What he has to say about the current situation is also interesting. You’ll find links here to previous Reich essays as well, and to his web site.
