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
John Holden has created a wonderful album for his debut release, featuring, amongst many other excellent musicians, Billy Sherwood, Oliver Wakeman and Oliver Day. I spoke to John about his inspiration for the music as well as how he put it together – in musical as well as technical terms.
It’s a great conversation and there are extracts from the album interspersed to whet your appetite!
