My contribution to the DrupalCon opening session

I wasn't in Prague on the first day of DrupalCon, but that didn't stop me from contributing to the opening session. Here is the "song" that I "sang", with all of the lyrics. Enjoy!

Open Source Music - Video from the DrupalCon Session

on Sat, 09/28/2013 - 20:14

The "Bach to the Future" session at DrupalCon Prague was fun, and a success, I think. Together with my wife, pianist Kimiko Ishizaka, I presented the concept of open source music, showed how Drupal is enabling the MuseScore project to thrive and treat musical scores as semantic content, and gave a demonstration showing the cool things you can do with digital scores and live performances. Kimiko Ishizaka played a selection of pieces from the Well-Tempered Clavier on the venue's Steinway grand piano, and it was a lovely way to start the final day of DrupalCon.

The Open Well-Tempered Clavier: Bach for everybody

I have come to love the music of J.S. Bach more than I thought would ever be possible. Every day when I listen to music, whether on iTunes, Spotify, or drawing from my CD collection, I am saddened that the one recording that I most desperately want to hear is not available to me. That's because it doesn't exist yet. The recording I so yearn for is Kimiko Ishizaka's recording of the Well-Tempered Clavier. She has found a level of profound beauty in these 48 pieces that is breathtaking. I can hardly wait for the world to hear it. Please support us in making that a reality by backing our Kickstarter project. Thank you!
