James Howard Young – Classical melodica video

 

Bach: Brandenburg Concerto 3 – 1 with 10 melodica tracks and live video for 9 parts

 

With 10 solo parts divided into three trio groups and continuo, this semi-lengthy movement required the use of at least 9 individual video tracks in order to make it work. Because of the natural size restrictions that embedded video presents, I needed to make three sets of individual movies with 3 soloists each and then mix them together. This pushed the boundaries of my computer processor, software, hardware, and most of all my patience, but all in all it was a very rewarding piece to work on. The original parts are covered and positioned like this:

Violin 1,2,3: Alto Melodica: Right to left, standing, orange shirt
Viola 1,2,3: Alto Melodica: Right to left, standing, blue shirt
Cello 1,2,3,: Bass Melodica: Left to right, sitting, blue shirt, haircut
Continuo: Bass Melodica: Not shown
