Die Textzeile "Schon der kleinste Gedanke genügt, um ein Leben zu erfüllen" von Ludwig Wittgenstein aus "Kultur und Wert" von 1946 besteht in der englischen Übersetzung aus lauer einsilbig erklingenden Wörtern; ("How small a thought it takes to fill a whole life"). Die Soprane singen ihren Part mit je einer Note pro Silbe, die Tenöre tragen lange Melismen auf einer einzigen Silbe vor. Nach einer a-capella-Einleitung doppeln die beiden elektrischen Orgeln durchgehend die Singstimmen und liefern die ergänzenden Harmonien; später setzt das Schlagwerk ein und artikuliert die Verlagerungen in den zwei- und dreizeitigen Rhythmen der Singstimmen

Nagoya marimbas für zwei Marimbaphone by Steve Reich( Recording )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1996 in Undetermined and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Werk arbeitet wie frühere Werke des Komponisten mit repetierten Patterns und Phasenverschiebung. "Im Gegensatz zu meinen frühen Arbeiten sind diese Rhythmusmuster aber melodisch stärker ausgearbeitet und wechseln häufig. Wie bei meinen neueren Werken wird jedes Muster höchstens dreimal wiederholt. Überdies ist "Nagoya marimbas" weitaus schwieriger als frühere Stücke von mir und erfordert zwei wahrhaft virtuose Spieler." (Steve Reich)
