Album Review

Catera, Damian – “Bach: The Well Tempered Clavier Book 1” – [Praxis Classics]

Cousin Mary   8/28/2012   A Library, CD

Catera writes randomization algorithms that transform audio. Here he applies this “decomposition” to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier. The sound of the clavichord is still recognizable most of the time, but the music is sliced, diced, processed, and rearranged into an electroacoustic mess that is sometimes a bit too repetitive, but overall is surprisingly interesting and listenable.

Worked for me: would make great coding music.
