Bach the minimalist

Unlike any other composer, Johann Sebastian Bach set standards for musical form and structure – rules which minimal music composers like Steve Reich and John Adams use. Their works form the soundtrack for an audio-visual concert which was developed by the video artist, Jemma Woolmore from New Zealand, for La Tempête: a play on structures which unroll via the musicians and create fascinating visual landscapes.
