Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson Perform Minimalist Hand-Clapping Song
Clapping Music is a minimalist piece by composer Steve Reich, involving two performers who clap. Both performers begin in unison, but one performer gradually shifts their tempo by an eighth note… until the two are once more in unison.

YouTube user petervanderham created this fantastic, hypnotic video. It’s a great idea, brilliantly executed. The longer I watch it, the more mesmerizing it gets.
