Ratings and Reviews
Great fun and good rhythm practice
Why aren’t the rhythms properly phased as written by Steve Reich? It runs phase 1,3.2, etc and the final phase where it should all resolve is phase 7 I.e in the middle. Fun to play but rhythmically makes no sense
Developer Response ,
Hello, thanks so much for pointing out the mistake in the patterns that happened during a recent iOS update. This has been fixed in a recent update and we hope you enjoy playing the piece as it was meant to be played!
Great app for fun and classroom
Fun to play and also useful in the classroom. I used it with Y9 when studying minimalism so students can practise at home before trying this in pairs in class.
