“Clapping Music” Variation

03.10.09 | Comment?

clappingThis is a variation on “Clapping Music” by Steve Reich. I am interested in Reich’s concept of the “gradual process” and wanted to try an experiment: Could I create a performance of this piece for the web? In my variation you can assume the role of audience or performer. To be in the audience you need only listen. To be a performer, click the word “manual” and use the triangular button to advance through the various phases of the composition. To return to an audience perspective, click “auto.”

Launch “Clapping Music”

Note: due to errors with onSoundComplete() introduced in Flash Player 9 “Clapping Music” Variation no longer plays correctly. Thanks to these guys, repairs have been initiated, but my file won’t work without a major overhaul…
