DreamFrame, for guitar alone

Joe Catalano

This piece takes both its graphic and musical inspiration from Ptolemy's The Almagest, Nicolaus Copernicus' On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres, and Book Five of Johannes Kepler's The Harmonies of the World. Much of the graphic content of this broadside is a reworking of these three writers' celestial diagrams. Kepler really did believe in a "harmony of the spheres," Copernicus only partially worked out a correct celestial mechanics, and Ptolemy put the earth at the center of the universe. Each of these intellectual constructs was part of a dream world, a vision of a reality which had only a relative truth.
