BACH Together

An online recording project open to everybody who wants to take part and share a slice of remote music-making.
Last Updated: March 28th, 1300(CET) - Version: 23

There are currently lots of musicians around the world unable to perform together due to cancelled concerts and/or travel restrictions. This experiment aims to bring together the sounds of many, so that we can share and enjoy the results.

If you press the 'Play' button at the top of this page you will hear a recording of a Bach choral, taken from the Matthew Passion. To start with we just have 2 parts recorded(!), but the aim of this project is to build it up using recordings (see below) from musicians across all over the globe.

The best bit is - It's all for FUN!
All you need is a mobile phone and email!
WANT TO JOIN US?
  1. Choose a voice to sing or play.
  2. Play/sing along with the previously-recorded track (using headphones if possible), and record your performance on your phone.
  3. Email the results from your phone to Adam Woolf at
  4. BachTogether@webspinner.eu

I will then add your performance to the recording and update the audio track above.

Pitch: A=440 (to try to make this as inclusive as possible).

It could be nice to list contributors and their locations, but you are free to contrbute anonymously. Just let me know and I'll list you as 'anon.'!

Feel free to send any humorous out-takes, as well! To share your experience! :)
