The music of Johann Sebastian Bach seems to be defined by divine intervention. Inspired by this timeless score O'Day mirrors Bach's rich and complex textures, musical counterpoints, and evocative qualities. Designed by Peter Pohl, the set is reminiscent to a Zen garden in its simplicity and purity. In this work O'Day combines abandonment and precision filling the space with pure energy.
