Bach’s Toccata in D minor – an Extended Reinterpretation

Bach’s Toccata is a glorious piece. In this particular performance, I play the unmodified work on the piano and then begin a reinterpretation starting with a swelling synthesizer. The synthesizer is a customized patch using Steinberg’s Halion. The piano is a Yamaha CP4. The visualization is through iZotope’s Ozone 7 Insight plug-in.

As with all my performances, it was done in one take, though I made some minor modifications and clean up before exporting it to a single file.

The piece was performed and broadcast via internet radio to a Second Life audience in Nitida Ridge, hosted by Bree Birke, on October 29th, 2016.
