CLASSICAL OPUS no.7

Erik Satie: “Gnossienne et Gymnopedies”

エリック・サティ:「グノシエンヌ と ジムノペディ」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 65 minutes

Hypnotic use of unresolved dissonances remains the mark of this ultimate bard of solo keyboard Dadaism.  His wobbly tales of vulnerability are often hailed as psychoactive and having power to mesmerize an attentive listener.  This particular recording starts with three sarabandes, but their presence is not too intrusive.  I recommend the Turkish slant on the theme in the second video, if only for several minutes.

A REFLECTION

A tap of your finger on the drum releases all sounds and initiates the new harmony.

A step of yours is the conscription of the new men and their marching orders.
