Goldberg Experienced

This performance project of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations was created through the use of a prepared piano. Each one of the variations was subjected to a new preparation and the multiple transformations evoke a decline of sorts. In taking on music as a living and transformable subject, the project reveals this Bach work in a new and unexpected manner.

A project of Patrick Bernatchez in collaboration with:
