In this video, I present for the first time a recorded version of the visionary art piece “Pachabel’s Canon in D” that Norman Miller visually performed in the early 1980s. Until now, it could only be viewed in the live performances that Norman gave for over 10 years, where thousands of people watched the show on Norman’s 9’ x 9’ rear projection screen as he mixed it in real time to the recorded music using his multiprojector slide machines.
Before closing the show in the late 1980s, Norman and I rented a video production studio where we recorded the live show for historical preservation.
In honor of Norman’s life and in giving thanks to all of the people along his way that supported his work with music, light, and imagery, we are sharing this amazing work of art by Norman B. Miller.
