Bach In Lights: Beautiful Video Visualises The Well Tempered Clavier

By -

Visual artists Alan Warburton has produced an incredibly clever and unique visualisation of J.S. Bach’s The Well Tempered Clavier, using thousands of fluorescent light bulbs.

Transforming two compositions – Prelude and Fugue in C Major – Warburton visualises the music using a form of graphical notation, displayed via a huge number of bulbs mounted around a gallery and parking garage. As each bulb lights up in sync with the music, the shape of the bulb corresponds to the length and pitch of the note being played. It’s an extremely clever way of visualising the music, and the effect is striking.

The piece was commissioned by Sinfini Music, and was performed by the very talented Pierre-Laurent Aimard.
