Another one from the vault.
Back in 2009 I decided to try my hand at some progressive rock. It's a genre that readily lends itself to fantasy, so I chose for my theme “The Myth Of Er” from Plato's Republic.
Plato often liked to close out his argumentation with a myth, thereby appealing to both logic and intuition. For this myth he draws on then current Orphic eschatological imagery.
Sadly, I lost the original files to this oldie but goodie in the great Mac crash of 2011, so I was only able to do a little bit of remastering for this post.
It's not perfect, but some of you may appreciate what I was aiming at even if I did fall a tad short of the mark.
The discerning ear will no doubt detect the influence of bands like Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, “Selling England By The Pound”-era Genesis, and the Moody Blues.
BTW, I play everything on this tune except the drums which—if memory serves—are good ol’ Apple Loops!
Hope some of you can enjoy this one.
Be well all!
