The fact that you can make music with computers is not new.

However, this is usually done with the help of software processes, i.e. through the use of samples or through the program-controlled synthesis of sounds.

A much more creative - but also extraordinarily laborious - way is to stimulate hardware components to make music.

Older peripheral devices in particular, such as floppy disk drives or printers, generate noise when they are in operation. If you control these devices creatively, this noise development can actually be used to create melodies.

There are numerous examples of this type of music on the web, and this has already been pointed out in this section.

This time we recommend this link, because at https://linusakesson.net/music/partita-prelude/index.php the Swedish developer Linus Åkesson goes one step further: He does not create the music with a computer program that takes the appropriate control steps in the hardware components used, but he plays live on the computer keyboard.

In addition to a technical explanation of how this actually works, there is a video on his website with a live recording of Johann Sebastian Bach's Partita No. 3 in E major (BWV 1006.1).

The concert, which lasts around eight minutes, may seem nerdy or even strange at first.

In the end, the realization wins in any case,

that an outstanding composition sounds good even when created using computers and floppy disk drives.

It's a pity that Bach can't experience that anymore.

Now our question:

Which piece of music by JS Bach is played several times in Woody Allen's film "Crime and Other Trifles" as background music for a documentary film that one of the protagonists shot?
