I didn’t think twice about getting double mileage from re-playing J.S. Bach’s ethereal Prelude in C minor, BWV 847. It turned out to be nature-inspired.
On a late afternoon trail trek to Tilden Park, I came equipped with a modest Sony Cyber shot digi-cam that provided a generous supply of photos.
These would be imported to my Baroque soundtrack.
First I recorded the music LIVE on the MAC, before blowing up my hands in an early morning camcorder snatch of my You Tube upload. The undertaking was challenging with interspersed interruptions by a droning BART train, Amtrak whistles, a garbage pick-up, whizzing cars, and squeaky buses. Yet chirping birds outside, provided a desired accompaniment.
Before I post video renderings of the Bach composition, here’s my stream of favorite Tilden photos taken along a picturesque trail.
