You've made a good argument and I can agree with what
you've said. The key here is that the artist is
considering both media at the time of creation, just as
Bach considered all 4 parts at the time of composing.
To be sure, another artist can come along many years after
the creation of a musical piece and add video to it, but is
it fair to the original artist and is it confusing,
distracting, or satisfying to the audience?
