CLASSICAL OPUS no.48

Erik Satie: “Vexations”

エリックサティ:「愁傷」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 63 minutes

We are invited on a damp pilgrimage to the netherworlds of confused apathy.  Texturally brilliant despite its deceptive monotony, the composition relies on an industrious bass theme with chords overlaid above it.  It’s a surrealist journey, deambulating eerily cobbled streets emptied of hooves’ misty echo.  As unreal as the stench of horses’ dung, long swept away.

A REFLECTION

Mr artist

Builds a world

Not from atoms

But from remnants
