What happens when three musicians take the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and develop it in a bold and skilful way? The result is a number of new constellations. "Vintage Moon", "Electric Rain", "Hiraeth" and "999" are the four hybrid works on the debut album of the BachSpace ensemble, situated at the interface of Baroque music and electronica. They have to date played their boundary-breaking music at various Bach festivals and at the 2017 Montreux Jazz Festival.
Together the three musicians have woven the Bach originals with the electronic compositions into new entities – a technique which was referred to as a "pasticcio" in the Renaissance and Baroque eras. These woven fabrics – these constellations – lend the density and emotionality of Bach's music a new dimension. Here is Johann Sebastian Bach, mutated into his own contemporary sound world thanks to skilful dramatic effect and recomposition: BachSpace.
