The Visual Well Tempered Clavier

Saturday, 30 May, 2015

“In 1722, Johann Sebastian Bach began one of his most ambitious works: a 24-part comprehensive guide to the keyboard, demonstrating the musical qualities of every major and minor key. The first part, C Major, saw Bach create two masterful compositions that explore musical structure in very different ways.” So says Alan Warburton, a designer and director who specializes in 3D animation and CGI. His Well Tempered Clavier video clip takes its inspiration from graphical notation, “an alternative to traditional sheet music notation that evolved in the 1950s and often involves abstract symbols and experimental visual codes.”

Alan Warburton’s video was commissioned by Sinfini, which encourages people to develop a passion for classical music.
