Open source - onward and upward

Open Goldberg Variations, Kimiko Ishizaka
In January 2013, I attended a recital by the pianist, Kimiko Ishizaka, when she played the complete Well Tempered Clavier, volume 1 (see my review). Ishizaka is a great believer in Open Source and with her Open Goldberg project has made her recording and a score of Bach's Goldberg Variations available for free download. This daring is cleary bearing fruit in striking ways; Ishizaka's recording will be used as illustrations a lecture about Bach and Fractals this Saturday (March 23) at the BachHaus as part of the annual BachFest in Cochabamba, Bolivia. (If you happen to be in Bolivia, the event starts at 18:00 with a video by Arthur C. Clarke about Fractals.) You can find the BachFest programme in English at the festival website.
