 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!

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.
