I also listened to some of those Ligeti recordings and it seemed liked he just had two seperste things going on. Like instead of blending African and "western" musc, he seperated them on different tracks. Am I right? Or did he blendthem together and I just missed it?
you're right, it alternates between a track of African music and a track of Ligeti (or Reich). but it was done to demonstrate how Ligeti and Reich were influenced by the African polyrhythms.
