Clapping Music/Tape Music hybrid

This is a process music composition inspired by Steve Reich. It’s based on a clapping pattern similar to his “Clapping Music”, but manipulated more in the style of tape music, for example, Reich’s “It’s Gonna Rain”. Editing the loops digitally gives the benefit of being able to loop video at the same time, but has the downside of missing a lot of the cooler sounds that would have come out with the imperfections of tape.

Relatively successful experiment, I suppose.

I’m thinking about uploading a minimalist music experiment every Monday. I already shot and edited the one for next week. :)
