The COVID-19 Fugue

Nicholas Papadimitriou hat’s getan.

Fugue on the Theme of COVID-19, also known as simply the ‚The COVID-19 Fugue‘.
My musical contribution to the worldwide pandemic of the Corona-virus might not bring humanity any closer to discovering the vaccine it is longing for, but, if you are a music enthusiast who is keen on the nerdy stuff, well, this is definitely something for you!

A complex, 4-plus-voice fugue, based on the subject of …the virus itself!
With some touches of artistic liberty, I interpreted „COVID-19“ as an acronym for the musical terms „C° V-I D 1-9“ (as explained at the beginning of the video) which when combined, shape a rather spicy fugue subject.

It was no surprise that the subject’s ‚unorthodox‘ nature made it quite challenging to integrate it in a tonal context;…a fact, however, that posed no obstacle to two-weeks worth of quarantine-induced free time, together with some Regerian/Mendessohnian inspiration.
Putting all my music degrees in practice (and some amateur-ish editing skills in Adobe After Effects), I created a ‚viral‘ (pun intended, hopefully) fugue, which will take you on a journey across 7 tonalities, 12 subject entries and lots of juicy modulations.

Was Amazon Leser*innen wollen

Vor zwei Jahren habe ich ein Stück uraufgeführt, das nur aus den Bewertungen von Fahrradklingeln auf Amazon kompiliert war.

Hier hat jemand Buchbewertungen durchgearbeitet.
