Theme music

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from the following two creative commons sources: thanvannispen and archive.org

  1. Some stuff: The Owner Of A Lonely Heart video was directed by Storm Thorgerson (Hipgnosis) and that may explain why it looks more like a sequence of images than a narrative video. The actor in it is Danny Webb who has been in a number of film/tv roles – biggest film probably Alien3.

    1. Yes, thanks Paul. I recognised that actor from The Bill (I think). He also looks very like England crocked cricketer, Simon Jones. Anyway, makes sense that Storm was involved. I think he should have stuck to brilliant album covers…harsh?
