A surprising new translation of the composer with the assist of a video/audio track

<a target="_blank" href="http://arioso7.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/1030.jpg"><img width=350 src="http://arioso7.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/1030.jpg" alt="" title="1030" width="640" height="360" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-19274" /></a>


On a whim, I decided to keep my Mac at a distance from the Steinway, walk over to the piano without being too conspicuous, and offhandedly play the Bach Prelude in C from the Well Tempered Clavier. Since I hadn't yet mastered the editing side of iMovie, I figured a majestic lead into the playing would still work even with my back turned to the camera as I made my way to the piano bench.<a target="_blank" href="http://arioso7.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/1042.jpg"><img width=350 src="http://arioso7.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/1042.jpg?w=300" alt="" title="1042" width="300" height="168" class="alignleft size-medium wp-image-19269" /></a>


In any case, I would preserve unedited moments with the flick of my Sony Cyber-shot digital if I had successfully trimmed the footage.

<a target="_blank" href="http://arioso7.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/1043.jpg"><img width=350 src="http://arioso7.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/1043.jpg?w=300" alt="" title="1043" width="300" height="168" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-19271" /></a>

The upper screen had the original frames before they were transferred to the editing arena down below.

<a target="_blank" href="http://arioso7.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/1033.jpg"><img width=350 src="http://arioso7.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/1033.jpg" alt="" title="1033" width="640" height="360" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-19267" /></a>


So here's how it played out after I had managed editing and uploading. (A sigh of relief!)
