Hidden Forms That Tell a Story

There are eleven hidden structures in 1001: The Reincarnation Chronicles.  What does that mean?  What do they have to do with music?  And mostly, why?  For example, in the past life tale in each chapter there is a hidden reference to one of The Thousand and One Nights.

For an overture into how hidden forms in music inspired me to this insanity, read my post in Roz Morris’ wonderful The Undercover Soundtrack.  Each week a writer talks about how music influences their writing, and provides a playlist of musical sources.  Mine includes Stravinsky, Sondheim, Berg, and Zappa.

Check it out, leave a comment, share it with others.  Thanks!
