#14. Come Out (1966): Come Out is a 1966 piece by American composer
Steve Reich. He was asked to write this piece to be performed at a
benefit for the retrial of the Harlem Six, six black youths arrested
for committing a murder during the Harlem Riot of 1964 for which only
one of the six was responsible. Truman Nelson, a civil rights activist
and the person who had asked Reich to compose the piece, gave him a
collection of tapes with recorded voices to use as source material.
Nelson, who chose Reich on the basis of his earlier work It's Gonna
Rain, agreed to give him creative freedom for the project.
