в сфере психологии я все что угодно могу связать с инфантильностью, в сфере художественной - с кафкой. довольно показательно.

The theme from The Prisoner, like the theme from Doctor Who, is

  1. absolutely gorgeous,
  2. composed by Ron Grainer,
  3. influenced heavily by people who were not Ron Grainer.

In Doctor Who's case, Delia Derbyshire and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop basically made that theme what it is, to the extent that Grainer asked ‘Did I write that?’ in utter astonishment. (Quoth Derbyshire: ‘Most of it.’)

In The Prisoner's case, an apocryphal account has Patrick McGoohan actually humming/whistling the tune to Grainer, who then proceeded to flesh out the theme music. The original arrangement, however, was very gentle, electric harpsichord-heavy, and almost downright respectably baroque, and if nothing else, McGoohan was likely responsible for scrapping that version and commissioning this revision instead—bold, powerful, upbeat, blasting trumpets and timpani and twin guitars like nobody's business.

(The audio posted is a remix cobbled together from the opening theme from ’Arrival’, the opening theme from later episodes, and the closing theme. It’s messy.)

Kafka is a ‘writer of absence’, describing a world that remains religious in its structure but in which the central place belonging to God is empty.

— S. Zizek, Less than nothing (via kafkaesque-world)
