Bach motif

I had the pleasure this summer of attending a concert in Carmel, CA. It was part of the Bach Festival that happens every year there. I’ve wanted to attend something connected with the Bach Festival since I lived in Monterey almost 20 years ago. It was a fantastic experience. I real treat!

The day inspired me to create a small motif.
BWV 225 Singet dem Herrn

It is based on the middle movement of a Cantata by Bach. Like many Cantatas, this piece uses a chorale (here represented by the white thread) and voices weaving harmony from melodies (here represented by the two blue colors of thread) in a dance of sound.
