About that Main Theme...   Friday, June 9, 2006 (10:55 p.m.) 

Does anybody else notice that the first portion of the main theme seems to be taken almost note for note from Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring"? More specifically the movement "The Evocation of the Ancestors" under part 2.

Not that I mind, it transfers pretty well from "contemporary classical" to "pounding techno theme" by switching from major to minor key, but still, I haven't heard anyone else note this yet.

Thanks all!
