His Way

Suggested by George Steiner’s phrase in the previous entry, “as in inverse canons”–

  1. A revision of Theme and Variations to include a midi of Bach’s variations on the Goldberg ground
  2. The following from the screenplay of Cold Mountain

    EXT. BLACK COVE FARM. DAY.

    A beautiful day,
    the farm peaceful.
    Inman walks up the path
    to the farmhouse….
    He knocks on the door.
    Monroe answers.

                MONROE
         Mr. Inman.

                INMAN
         Reverend.

                MONROE
         What can I do for you?

    Inman hovers, awkward.
    Ada appears, awkward.

                INMAN
         I have some sheet music.
         Belonged to my father.
         No use to me.

    Ada comes forward,
    takes the package.

    ****** LATER *******

    INT. PARLOUR. 
    BLACK COVE FARM. DAY.

    At the piano, Ada unwraps
    the package of music. 
    Inside the first book of music,
    there’s a picture of Inman. 
    Some of the music has left its
    imprint on the picture, the notes
    like a melody over Inman’s face.

    Ada picks them out on the piano.

  3.     Bach, BWV 1087 (midi)

    (Fourteen Canons on the First Eight Notes of the Goldberg Ground)

  4.         Bach in the original —
      
       

  5.        “Bach in the Original” —
