Together Chaconne began as a project to connect Youth Music Culture Guangdong faculty and alumni worldwide during the quarantine.

This arrangement uses the bassline from Bach’s Chaconne for solo violin in D minor, over which many different YMCG musicians improvise, contributing their own sounds and styles.

Evelyn Brandes (USA) composed the arrangement, Chan Weng Loi Rain (Macao, China) edited and mixed the audio, and Yoanita Kartadihardja (Indonesia) edited the video.
