Steve Reich Clapping Music free iOS app

Here is something relaxing for the Friday afternoon and to ease on all the heavy discussions…

Steve Reich’s Clapping Music is a free game that improves your rhythm by challenging you to play Steve Reich’s ground-breaking work – a piece of music performed entirely by clapping. Tap in time with the constantly shifting pattern, and progress through all of the variations. If you slip up or your accuracy falls too low, it’s game over.

Steve Reich’s Clapping Music is part of a research project led by Queen Mary University of London. The aim of the project is to explore if gaming experiences can help people learn musical skills, and if this leads to a deeper engagement with the arts. Complete three short questionnaires and enter a draw to win one of ten £50 Amazon vouchers. For more information on the Clapping Music research project and to find out how to take part, visit the project’s website.
