Oooh, what an interesting take on this... it is as if Wendy Carlos were playing this while riding a tricycle up and down little moguls. This is very fun, relaxing, but the rubato gave it an edgy propulsion that was really novel. I like it! I have a 2-CD performance of WTC on piano by S. Richter that I listen to often.
ttfn,

Rubato
Yep, quite deliberately played without click track so that I can speed up riffs, and hesitate in dramatically appropriate places. Glad you like it.

Yeah
That's a nice track! Your synth sounds are pretty smart and 'oscillator-y' in that Wendy Carlos way.

Cool!
What a novel concept. I love Bach and this is a very appealing interpretation. You've got my imagination going now and I am wondering about all the different interpretations that could come from the great synth sounds we can generate in our era.
Very good,
Stephen

I love the way this interpets itself with the modern software synths. Very nice thanks!

Great interpretation
the synth voices embody different tonalities and expressions of strings and pipe organ and make this contemporary yet respectful at the same time. I really think he's approve.

Strings
Bach's keyboard works need an instrument with both attack and long sustain. This is my first attempt. Pleasant, but not optimal yet. I'll post more JSB as my synthesis attempts progress.

Feels right to me.
2 thumbs up (duh)
I'm generally a 99% guitar-head and I know you're sort of the opposite. And while I have little knowledge of classical, I wanna offer-up my respect for your keys AND the fact that you blew-off the click, which would just drain the soul from this fine stuff. P.S., nice magic sunset-hour photo!

Very cool!
Almost sounds like it was filtered through the "Clockwork Orange" soundtrack. A very clever and interesting take. enjoyed it very much.

This
is one of Bach's more lyrical works. Not overtly contrapuntal and in a way lends itself to this dreamy interpretation.
I enjoyed it.

Electro choral
Vic, this is fantastic, a great electronic take on a classical piece. Can i have an album of music like this? I'll pay!

There
are so many ways to play Bach-the lines are SO good. This is way outside of what the mainstream classical world would call "acceptable" but who cares? Great stuff- I'd love to hear more in this direction.

Well I am
a sucker for Bach ever since a yoof and listening to Walter...now called Wendy...Carlos and also Mnsr Louissier Trio and their take on the delightful music of JS and the other Bachs whose initials elude me, this is a very evocative piece of music and certainly catapults me back to grammar school,vinyl LPs and Oxford Bags. Nice one Vic.

Tomita-like
Your treatment of this reminds me of Tomita's "Snowflakes are Dancing" album, which was groundbreaking in its day. I like your choice of synth sounds here; they have a "classic", retro feel (a la MOOG).

I would have liked a bit more of a trail-off on the last note, but VERY minor quibble.

just as I suspected. Your classical touch is just as impressive.

well....
This was a bit of an experiment. I don't mind the result, but my mind's ear was hearing something better. I still think a synthesizer can play Bach's keyboard work better than any existing single instrument, but this is not yet proof positive.
