Schenkerian Analysis is ridiculous. Discuss....
It rings a distant bell. The bell is located somewhere in my brain that is filled with cobwebs...I must not have visited in a very long while!
sorry...just venting a bit. Taking a class now. :) I mean... :(
I took a graduate class in Schenkerian a LONG time ago. The rhythmic reduction has value, particularly in uncovering separate lines in something like unaccompanied Bach. And I remember that the Pachelbel Canon has a 10-6 linear intervallic pattern. It does get a little ridiculous boiling everything down to a simple fundamental line or chord progression.
