Clapping Music (Steve Reich, 1972)

Clapping Music is a piece for two performers. At the begging of the piece both performers clap the same basic rhythm, while the piece advances the second performer slightly alters the pattern by shifting one clap (one eight note) to the right, this happens each twelve bars until both performers match the rhythm again. This music video is an exploration on rhythm, repetition and subtle transformation; and, of course, splited screen.
