Sunday Synth Jam: This is a very nicely realized switched on realization, in the style of Wendy Carlos, of J. S. Bach’s Gavotte from Orchestral Suite no. 4 in D.
Yet another “switched-on bach” project in the style of Wendy Carlos. This time, a wonderful dance from the fourth Orchestral Suite, the Gavotte. In 4/4 time, but with the emphasis on the 3rd beat of the measure, rather than the 1st, the Gavotte was a royal court favourite in the francophile countries of the Baroque period.This piece marks the beginning of my “Soft Synth Odyssey”, realizing different tracks with different software synthesizers. To start out on familiar ground, this track was realized with the Arturia Moog Modular V2 emulation synthesizer, recorded in Ableton Live.I hope you enjoy it.-David
