I have long been fascinated with the famous Chaconne from the Partita No.2 in D minor for solo violin by J.S. Bach. The rather melancholy theme which drones on throughout the piece. Even though perhaps the theme is not actually being played, the harmonic and rhythm variations thereof keep it alive. If the listener is constantly reminded of Bach Chaconne during the piece, then my goal is completed. -- Kerry Turner
