Music Video – Electronic Little Fugue in G Minor (Bach)

One of my recent projects has been recording JS Bach’s Little Fugue in G Minor with a synthesizer. I will post the video here in case you you want to hear it but don’t want to read about it. Be aware that I did a few fumbles, but I think overall it worked well.

(Note – I replaced the original video with a newer version November 1, 2021 – below is still about the old version. Click here for info on the new)

Music That Means Something Day 2

Pyschodelic Music

This is Day two!  I’ll tell what album I chose in a minute.  Look here for my intro.

Don’t know this challenge?  Here is the basic idea (which I’ll semi-ignore):

Post a song a day for five consecutive days. (will do, well album, not song)

Post the name of the song and a video. (will do – a song from the album)
Nominate 1 or 2 bloggers each day of the challenge. (Well…, All of you)

(I was “volunteered” to do the challenge by Sue Vincent ;) )

He gave me a strange look and said, “You’re the first creative type I’ve met who didn’t drink coffee by the gallon.”

Ah, how times have changed. Continue reading
