Bach in Lights

bach in lights - alan warburton 2In Bach in Lights Alan Warburton takes you on a visual trip through Johann Sebastian Bach’s The Well Tempered Clavier.

Warburton: “In 1722, Johann Sebastian Bach began one of his most ambitious works: a 24-part comprehensive guide to the keyboard, demonstrating the musical qualities of every major and minor key. The first part, C Major, saw Bach create two masterful compositions that explore musical structure in very different ways.
My film draws inspiration from minimalist sculpture and graphical notation, an alternative to traditional sheet music notation that evolved in the 1950s and often involves abstract symbols and experimental visual codes.”
