In Performance: Electric Counterpoint by Steve Reich

Electric Counterpoint by Steve Reich
Performed by guitarist Mats Bergström 

This video was filmed as part of the Steve Reich's Clapping Music App project: “In 1972 I composed a piece called Clapping Music and all it needs is your two hands. This app is very helpful: it will teach you to play the piece and it will prepare you to perform it live. It’s a bit of a challenge but an interesting one, and you can download it for nothing.” Steve Reich

Steve Reich’s Clapping Music App is a new game designed to enhance the excitement of learning to play music.

Developed by the London Sinfonietta, Touchpress and Queen Mary University of London, and supported by the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts, it is a universal iOS app for iPad and iPhone.
