Steve Reich’s Clapping Music was conceived by the London Sinfonietta and realised in collaboration with Queen Mary University London and Touchpress – creators of acclaimed music apps Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, The Orchestra and Juilliard Open Studios. It was supported by the Nesta’s Digital R&D Fund for the Arts, the Arts & Humanities Research Council and public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

One of my favorites
As a former percussionist, it is my duty and pleasure to love this app. I even developed a technique so that I can use larger muscles for more accurate tapping. I hold my phone in my left hand and rest the right side of the phone on the second knuckle of my right index finger. I then rotate from the elbow to tap the screen with my right thumb (similar to Stevens grip). Anyway, this “game” is beautifully designed and a joy to play.
Incredible, exhilarating, educational
This is my favourite game at the moment. It's really addictive, and I love the exhilarating feeling after several rounds and offsets, when you're nailing it and just flowing. Of course, the sinking feeling when the inevitable mistake comes, and you lose your place, only means having to go again! If you are remotely interested in music and rhythm, get this now.
This is a wonderful app. Just wanted to give a crash report: On my iPad Air and iPhone 5c I am experiencing crashes upon exiting practice mode going back to the pattern selection screen. Once it crashes there isn't anything I can do to get the app to run except delete it and download again.
