Have you ever wished that Bach’s music was even more logical? In The Well-Sorted Disklavier by Wilf Amis & Hugo Bell, Johann Sebastian Bach’s Das wohltemperierte Klavier – one of the first compositions ever written organised according to principles of logic – is taken apart, shuffled, sorted and recomposed note-by-note over the course of one evening according to the hidden aesthetics of a sorting algorithm. The Well-Sorted Disklavier is the winning piece of the Conlon Foundation’s Disklavier Plus Competition 2021.
