Third Coast Percussion released an album of Steve Reich’s music to celebrate the 80th birthday of the American composer in 2016. This app gives you a chance to explore Reich’s musical ideas while creating your own music. Each of the three activity pages relates to a specific compositional technique used in Reich’s work.
Phasing starts with the looping idea of It’s Gonna Rain. Additive lets you assemble interlocking polyrhythms, working with Music for Pieces of Wood. Canons works with overlaid melodies, from Sextet.
The result is a visual appearance that represents the unique minimalism of Steve Reich and the simplicity of Third Coast Percussion’s teachings.
