From an email I received:
I picked up the new Joe Satriani cd yesterday and was reading through the liner notes tonight. The last track is titled Crowd Chant. There was something familiar about the sound. From the notes:
“The song borrows a slice of melody from Faure’s “Pavane” written in 1887. It comes in so randomly, it really makes the whole piece move into another space…”
So how does my “other guitar guy” wind up using a melody from the same song you recorded for Winter Rose? Answer, everything is connected. It made me smile, anyway.
It’s a small world and the currents of thought are mingling in space and time…
William Burroughs once noted that ideas do not belong to a person or a place, but to a time, and I have always found that to be a very astute comment.
