Based on the compact disc “Porträt 2009”, a video has been compiled from still images to the soundtrack of J. S. Bach’s d-minor Toccata BWV 565. It allows a more sensual approach to the instrument.

The audio samples have been gathered from the same disc. The recordings render the colours, but the volume and the distribution of the sound in the church room can’t be reproduced. The microphones were placed on height level of the organ loft at the border between the first and the second vault arch.
