Bassoonist/Sound Artist Archie Carey has time traveled to the year 1720 to meet the baroque master Johann Sebastian Bach. Over a cup of tea Archie revealed the secrets of the world’s technology in the year 2012 (including the invention of the electric bassoon) to the composer, at the time he was in the middle of writing his famous Six Cello Suites. Archie has returned safely in the 21st century but it seems a few things have changed in the world since his conversation with Johann. Join Archie and his electric bassoon to hear the Bach Cello Suites strangely arranged with delay, phaser, distortion, and other various electronics.
