Welcome to the research hub for Steve Reich’s Clapping Music, a simple but compelling game - can you perform the whole piece? The app has been developed by a team involving researchers, musicians and technologists from three organisations - The London Sinfonietta, Touchpress, and Queen Mary University of London. You don’t need to be a musician to play, in fact we would love as many people as possible of all ages to download it and get tapping and clapping! Steve Reich’s Clapping Music is available as a free download from the iTunes App Store for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (running iOS 8 or above). Over 100,000 people have downloaded the app already - what are you waiting for!
