This album contains a series of transcriptions I've made over the years using classical piano works as a source. The music of J. S. Bach is ideal for the purpose, and formed the basis of one of the first synthesizer albums, Walter Carlos' Switched on Bach from 1968. I don't care how out of fashion these Bach transcriptions might be, they were fun to do and I still enjoy hearing them. Four of the pieces come from Bach's late fugal treatise The Art of Fugue (BWV 1080), and the remaining Bach piece is a semi-ambient treatment of the chorale prelude Wachet Auf! (Sleepers, Wake!). The set is capped with a transcription of a piano piece by Felix Mendelssohn, one of his Songs Without Words (op. 38, no. 6).
