Support for the Arts (Xylophone in the Woods)
For those who haven’t seen it yet, here is Bach’s Kantata 147, “Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben (Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring)” as recreated on a wood xylophone in the woods.
The ending to the video is somewhat of a let down, but at the same time I think it’s simply wonderful these artists were given such a lovely opportunity to create their own kind of music and share it with such a wide audience. Does anyone have a better suggestion for supporting artists? The state? Private patrons? They seem to all have their own agendas, too.
A video on the making of the commercial is on the Docomo website.
Seeing the scenery makes me want to go hiking now. . .
