To begin the morning, TEDXVancouver presented an “old world, dawning future” mash-up of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. With a Performance that included the house Wurlitzer Organ, a DJ, a ballet dancer and live digital visual artists.
The ominous overture from organist Ay-Laung Wang is joined by an enthusiastic and custom choreographed piece from performers at Goh Ballet. Together the dancers embrace the tone of Confluence and have created an engaging custom choreographed performance before being joined by DJ SKLA and the visuals from Stuart Ward.
This performance set the tone for the day as TEDXVancouver 2012 Host, Riaz Meghji, took to the stage to begin the morning session of speakers.
