Embedding videos into a webpage with significant additional information, links, back-story, etc – can hold the viewer in a contained space – while watching the video or listening to the soundtrack.
It can become an immersive experience — ideas from our piano recording session with Tomás:
On the very last Sunday that the Grand Piano (for summer concerts) stood in our church, a young boy sat at that piano after most people had left, and played – just played. Chopin, Bach, improvisation. The room went silent and those on their way out came back to listen. And so we were introduced to Tomás.
It was agreed that Tomás play at the following Sunday worship, and that we also studio record the previous day.
It was a shame that the grand piano would be removed, but our usual upright piano is also a good instrument. Four pieces were recorded on Saturday and the first of them at worship on Sunday.
In addition to Chopin, Tomás loves Bach and so chose to play Sinfonia –
– and then to follow with an improvisation he calls ‘Bach Inspiration‘
