J.S.Bach’s Crab Canon on a Möbius Strip

by Lorne Mitchell on 20/06/2010

For those who know me, I just love the artistic form called the Palindrome or Crab Script.  I took a lot of inspiration from this piece by J.S. Bach – which plays the same forwards and backwards, as well as being able to be played forwards and backwards AT THE SAME TIME – and still be beautiful.  What a true masterpiece!

This video lets you see it being played on a Moebius Strip – all the more beautiful as an art form, linking geometry and music in this elegant (yet quite constricting) art form which I love to play with!
