“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Where Has This Tune Been All My Life?

Suspensions: check. Cimbalom: check. Modulation to the subdominant key so that the main riff appears to emerge out of this beautiful widescreen cloud, as it had been enfolded within it secretly: check. Major key with sadness: check.

A good chunk of it has been on Jon Hopkins excellent third album Insides. Brian Eno brought him in while producing Viva La Vida and he did a lot of work on the album.
