The Great Event, impresions

Post by Adam la Terre » Mon Jun 14, 2010 12:02 pm

I don't know if anyone has noted this before but does any body else see a connection with this song and the Theosophist composer Scriabin?

"Scriabin devised a quartal synthetic chord, often called his "mystic" chord, and before his death Scriabin planned a multimedia work to be performed in the Himalayas that would bring about the armageddon; "a grandiose religious synthesis of all arts which would herald the birth of a new world." " taken from wikipedia.

you never have to tell me what it is you really think of me, I'll just say I'mdoing fine, but do I have to dance all night. -Leonard Cohen
