WPR site will enable listeners to "see" Bach piece as it is performed

Wisconsin Public Radio has developed a website to accompany its upcoming broadcast of the "Open Goldberg Variations," which is the "first fan-funded, open source, and completely free recording" of Bach's "Goldberg Variations," according to the Boing Boing website.

WPR's site will display the score, enabling listeners to "see" the music as it plays from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Central June 24, "a first-ever event, proving bleeding edge technologies," said Robert Douglass, who launched the Kickstarter project behind the production.

Partnering with WPR is MuseScore, a free music composition and notation software.
