Steve Reich's Clapping Music is now an app. Developed by the London Sinfonietta, Queen Mary University of London, and Touchpress, Steve Reich’s Clapping Music offers an interactive experience in learning and understanding rhythmic patterns through Reich’s seminal work. In the new app, users learn to play the iconic piece, in which two performers clap a single but constantly shifting pattern for the entirety of the work. For those who perfect their Clapping Music skills, there is the opportunity to pit themselves against London Sinfonietta percussionists in competitions to perform live with the ensemble.Read more|Journal Topics:Artist Newssteve reichhttp://www.nonesuch.com/journal/robert-plant-steve-reich-record-store-day-vinyl-nonesuch-store-2015-04-27April 27, 2015|0 comments
