Well, wikipedia, that fount of all free knowledge, says a fugue is a piece where a theme is stated then little bits of it get tossed around against each other forwards and backwards etc, 3 notes at a time, 5 notes at a time. Not exactly a theme and variation. My music education stopped after high school, and there they taught us a lot more about circus music, show music, and russian music than anything baroque. Classical radio has been my main general music education, there was a classical "for profit" station in Houston from 1961- 1979, KLEF. Then there was Carl Haas and "Exploring Music" on the various classical (non-profit) FM stations around. Rock and pop have had the franchise on good melodies in the last 40 years, with the non-melody idiots getting government grants to write **** for symphonic orchestras. (I have heard 1 or two good modern symphonic bits, but I can't remember them now). Iron Butterfly apparently took too many "experience enhancers" to develop after their first album, the second was garbage. Manzarik noodles along in a baroque fashion between rants of Morrison (good poetry but he had a self important streak) probably the best recorded example is "LA woman". The PBS American Masters on the Doors explained how Manzarek would improvise along for tens of minutes in live performance while Morrison was lost in a fog of "experience enhancers" that he could not bother to share with the audience. I rather like variations that stay in the same key, as opposed to the lost in the harmonic wilderness wandering of Coleman Hawkins (right? saxophone player that got off the train in Tucumcari in 1953 to find a hit of horse?) and his followers.
All U-tube posts are lost on me, Ubuntu 8.1 operating system is as silent as the sphinx without the dancing commercial flash player plug-in downloaded, and in the interest of not watching flashing **** at the head of every page I look at, I never downloaded it. If anybody manages to produce a midi file, I might be able to export that to my EPS keyboard, but it would be a bit of a technical stretch. Sorry, missed your great art!
