Song of the Day

When I heard this song, I knew I had to share it with everyone out there. Think of it as classical techno; fusing the classical baroque Canta 147 by Bach with old gameboy and Nintendo sounds within a techno beat (It sounds strange, but just play the vid. you  won't be sorry). If you're interested in hearing more, check out Omodaka. They're a Japanese band that have been experimenting with fusing Japanese and Western Classical music using gameboys as the primary musical instrument.


Canta 147-Omodaka (techno)



I've also posted the original  17th century version for those of you unfamiliar with Bach and his work. You can also read about Bach and his contributions to classical music here.
