Johann Sebastian Bach - fugue in G minor, "Little" terribly mangled by me

I think I just did something quite horrible.

Maybe I didn't, though. I'm just not sure how I would label taking a MIDI rendition of this classical piece of organ music, replacing the instruments with mostly random synthetizer plugins, speeding the whole thing up a bit and slapping a drum'n'bass drumloop on top. Mindless, maybe. It is an uninteresting piece of crap that sounds a whole lot worse than most of the other renditions. Still, it is a concept. I think I should - someday - make a more serious effort and really turn a classical piece into a full-blown electronic track. It has been done, obviously. But it needs to be done more and hell, why should I not do stuff that needs to be done?
My sleep-deprived ramblings aside, here is the result of my (unbelievably little) effort:

Feel free to flame me for this. I think I deserve it. I think I just needed to make a video and the overwhelming desire made me forget about things like quality. It happens to the best of us.

Oh, and you should follow me on Twitter, obviously.
