Bach Cello Suite No. 2 + Essential Voices - Created w/ iMovie
Bach’s cello suites are of course, unaccompanied. This artist added harmonies where Bach implied them- actually playing the overtones and exploring the missing layers of chord structure. He used iMovie’s picture in picture feature to make this video. The Acapella App would be a great tool to make a similar video if you don’t have iMovie. Maybe you could try this with a snippet of Bach while practicing at home!
