DEPT. OF CHROMATIC TRANSFORMATIONS


eye-Bach

     "Excuse me?" says Prickles. It's the Prelude No. 13 from "The Well Tempered Image Processor". OK, so it's not Bach but it's very Bach-like. Maintains constant form throughout while concentrating on beautifully varying the chromatic key in novel ways. If Bach were a visual rather than aural artist he might have composed something like that. "We'll never know, will we?" says Prickles. Doesn't matter. This little visual prelude is in the spirit of Bach and offered as an homage to him.

     So what do you think? "It would help if I had a case of synaesthesia," notes Prickles, "then I could tell you if this color play sounds like Bach. But I don't so I'll just take your word for it. It's pretty." I happen know this is your sneaky way of saying it isn't worthy of Bach. "If the shoe fits, wear it," she says.
