My rework of Erik Satie’s Gymnopédie N°1

Gymnopédie N° 1 by Erik Satie

Took a midi performance of the piece, slowed it down to 8 bpm or so, removed repetitions, performed on piano, then orchestrated on top of that with synths and sample libraries treated orchestras.
I think his piece is quite optimistic and quirky, even performed slowly. I took his score’s instructions and followed that as close as I could: “Slow and Painful”
Performed on a cold December Friday afternoon in Paris, France.
Long live Erik Satie. A genius, a true one.
