It's Gonna Rain

That previous post was A) super cool and B) a visual accompaniment to Clapping Music, a piece by Steve Reich.  Steve Reich is an American composer, typically categorized as a minimalist, who began exploring with tape loops to create musical ideas from acoustic recordings.  Here is an excerpt from his most famous piece, "It's Gonna Rain." The source material was recorded in Union Square in San Francisco in 1965.
