These Allemandes were composed by following a detailed plan, which was based on Bach's Allemande from Suite BWV 996. Here's the program:
Allemande 1: Trisha Budd
Allemande 2: Ian Pollard
Allemande 3: Ilay Kenes
Allemande 4: Paula Child
Allemande 5: Brittany Lum
This method of writing music, called model composition, was widely used by composers like Bach and many others from past centuries.
