WRITING ON A MANUSCRIPT (OF JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH)

String Trio

8 min.

2003

(excerpt)

Fragments of imaginary realizations of JS Bach's manuscript facsimiles for his three-part keyboard invention in F minor, interpreted as a sequence of graphic scores, cut up into scraps, and then strung to from Ravel's piano music blurred into echoing chords using trills, tremolos, and tone clusters.
