Bach Polanise in G Minor

I have not been painting as much as usual because I wanted to work on my latest translation of music to color.  I am trying out a new "instrument".  I have felt for a while that in order to see the music better it is probably important to keep the notes on the screen for a while and have them roll out of the center and dissappear into the sides of the screen.  This way the translation from one note to another is not so abrupt.  Here is the second piece I tried using this method.  I got some, but not all, of the kinks out on this one.  On my Mac the youtube version is not as smooth as I would like it to be but some people who have PCs say it looks smooth on their machines.  Next piece I will be dealing with dynamics.  What is good about this method is that it really could be played in real time if I only knew how to hook up the colors to the keyboard.

Let me know what you think.
