PRX-001- J.S. Bach-The Well Tempered Clavier Book 1
A Computer Mediated DeComposition by Damian Catera (2011)
The tools of digital alchemy are used to convert 18th century baroque music into something completely new and exciting! This version of Bach’s classic collection of keyboard works represents a radical application of contemporary random based practices to these iconic tonal harmonic pieces. The end product is an alluring soundscape of uncompromising intensity kicked out into 5 pieces.
This album is a natural outgrowth of a body of work including sound installations, print editions , video installations and performances, presented in gallery and museum exhibits.
“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.” – Cousin Mary KFJC
