Erik Satie: Gnossiene No. 1

I love impressionist music and this is one of my favorites out of a good era; one of the last before the world wars hit and ‘high’ art and culture began to degenerate.

Cavernously haunting, bittersweet melancholy, trackless wandering through a misty maze, inviting contemplation. Simple and elegant compared to crowded baroque and classical period pieces.

Here’s a visual version played slow that allows you to see all of the melody, chords, and sustains.
